I wanted to delete some files from the system like some useless system apps/themes etc. I was trying to root my phone with magisk. The magisk would install but I couldn't make any kind of changes because I found it was read-only! Now if I want it to mount read-write, it just won't. Any solutions, anyone?
Resmi Note 9S Curtana, OFox R11 installed with xiaomi.eu 12.0.1.0, android 11

You can't mount system because of dynamic partitions (super partition). The script linked above doesn't mount system rw, it just makes a new super partition.

The real way to make edits to dynamic partitions is with adb remount which replaces the old 'mount -o rw, remount /system' method.

The practical way to make edits is systemlessly with a magisk module.

I feel superdumb but @jwchips , where am I supposed to put those commands- in custom recovery terminals, in Windows command prompt or in a terminal emulator app?
