How can I mount my system to be R/W so that I can modify the files inside? I am trying to apply the hotspot mod so that I can use hotspot freely (I am still on the unlimited plan). Also looking to apply adaway, which I cannot without system R/W

I have tried apps in the play store and unlocking it through adb shell, maybe I'm just not trying the right options?

Root your phone
use a file manager like es file manager and put it in root mode

Strange, I thought root mode in ES was removed. Found it again though, thanks.

After you enable it in ES you have to click on the Root Explorer words then your option to mount R/W will pop up...
