  • @RoberM for testing
  • @surdu_petru for testing and handy pointers
  • @Androxyde for allowing to use his linux and mac adb binaries.

Code:
adb shell
su
mount -o remount,rw /system
Or use root explorer to mount it when in the system directory

But if you update to 2.8.1 the issue is resolved anyway, quick work by @[NUT]

In order to get the correct time going in Philz recovery ensure you read the FAQ in the DevDB thread here

Basically, Goto recovery options, GUI preferences, Date and time, change date and time and ensure "Parse Daemon time data" is checked.

This seems exciting.
Just checking, this will allow root with a locked boot loader. Thus keeping the TA partition and all DRM keys?
