I faced an issue that Android R emulator cannot be rooted.

First I launch the Android R emulator ->

/Users/myname/Library/Android/sdk/emulator/emulator -avd emulatorname -no-snapshot -writable-system

Then I execute the commands:

adb shell


mount -o rw,remount /system 

and get the error -> mount: '/system' not in /proc/mounts

My other attempt also fails, the emulator becomes not responsive after the last command:

adb root

adb remount

adb reboot

Please advise.
