You do not need to worry about it. When MiX is requested to do something that requires it to mount the system partition as RW, it will do it automatically, and then automatically remount as RO when it is done.

Not so sure about the remount to RO part. You do anything in the system partition, even just an ls, and it's mounted as RW by default.

You can blacklist partitions so that they don't get mounted as RW (which has implications for accepting OTAs). See
https://forum.xda-developers.com/sho...691&p=78374828

https://forum.xda-developers.com/sho...691&p=78375596

https://forum.xda-developers.com/sho...691&p=78393217

https://forum.xda-developers.com/sho...691&p=78401371

And, just to finish this off, it's now working correctly. I'm using
Code:
"blacklist_mounts": "\/product,\/system,\/system_root,\/vendor",
(depending on device+Android version you may not have some of those partitions)

If you want to check what it's doing just grab some mixplorer logs and look at what they tell you.

If you know how to do it and you teach me, I thank you.

Hi, I haven't read the threas too well I admit, but if you are rooted with Magisk, you can easily do that with the module found on this thread:

Log?
Exact version (Playstore or beta).

Works fine here on Version: 6.35.4 B19040310.

Although heyres one suggestion to Hootan: please add a dropdown option to empty recycle bin in one click [instead of first selecting all files in the bin and then delete].

Thanks

Using android 9, when I insert a usb flashdrive, Mix shows it twice: 8346-5D91 x 2.

Why is that?

Also what is .android secure?

The duplicated instances of recently added USB drives has been reported. It may or may not be the case that only one of them is functional. I'm not sure of the status of this but to learn more you could search the main thread for similar reports and mention there that it is occurring on your device.

IIRC, the .android secure folder is a native part of the OS having to do with secure apps on external SD but my memories of it are from back when we could move apps to external SD so you might want to do some quick research for a better explanation: "what is .android secure".

In KitKat some people deleted it (I used to but don't anymore). It may not appear in all file managers, and not all file managers are capable of deleting it, but I used to so with SD card inserted directly into card reader on computer.

Thank you for the explanation.

Another question if I may.
This is a new phone (Moto G7) which is not yet rooted. But, mix let's me explore and manipulate root files as if I was rooted. How is that possible?
