I'm trying to edit my /init.rc file on my rooted Galaxy Pro. And have accessed my device using SSH (to QuickSSH server on the device) over wifi. The / mount is shown as readonly, so I tried to remount with option rw, but I get
mount: permission denied
The phone is rooted. Why would this not work? I issued the 'su' command but that made no difference. whoami still shows
whoami: unknown uid 1010062
I know linux, but not android. Come someone tell me how to switch to root?
