What file browser are you using?

Easy solution: get Root Explorer. Go to the folder and toggle "Mount R/W." Do your business, then when you're finished, toggle "Mount R/O."

I would go with ehvio's suggestion. Also, you may want to check that you didn't lose root.

I checked if I have root by typing "su" into the terminal, and it asked for access and changed from a $ to a # so I'm good to go there.

I'll try out Root Explorer and report back, thanks for the suggestion.
