App. to mount the system dir with r/w permission (especially for new(-er) Froyo versions)
Mount the dir at demand, or tell the app to mount it every time the Android shell is loaded.
update: added an option to remount the dir as r/o

On the Android market (free)
Scan:


or search for mount system

The program is called mount /system (rw / ro)

Ah, I've just rooted my phone and now need to install Busybox, but I need to mount the system as rw, but Terminal Emulator is fc on me, will this work in its place?

Should work. It doesn't depend on busybox so.. give it a try.

Anyone got an idea why this isn't working on my phone (just like every other mounting script or tool)? I got an I9000 running JM8 and stock kernel Voodoo. It doesn't report an error, but I still can't delete anything from system folder.

Interesting. I assume you have busybox installed? It comes with the standard update.zip rooting method. If so, it surely is a kernel thing. I'm running jm8 myself on a Sgs I9000, and I've no problems.

I just realized that there does seem to be a way to write to system partition on my phone: titanium backup is deleting unwanted system apps just fine. :-/
