I rooted my Alcatel OneTouch S'Pop using an exploit app Framaroot.apk. When I tried to push a file to /system/usr/keylayout/Generic.kl using Eclipse's File Explorer, I got this error:

[2015-01-06 23:00:29 - ddms] transfer error: Read-only file system
[2015-01-06 23:00:29] Failed to push selection: Read-only file system

Pulling the file has no problems and I edited it to remap my camera button as a power button because the power button doesn't work well.

Could this be because the exploit method wasn't a good idea or do I somehow have to change the system folder to be R/W? And how do I do that?

You have to remount your /system partition be mounted as a read/write partition

What you need to do is

$ su

# mount -o remount,rw /system

  • I'm using Windows 7. Can you tell me where the console into which I need to type that code is? – Foxcat385 Jan 7 '15 at 20:23
  • @Foxcat385 Android Shell. Either use adb or get a terminal emulator on Play Store – samsung Jan 7 '15 at 21:32
  • Thanks. The terminal emulator worked, but the keyboard keys weren't remapped. – Foxcat385 Jan 10 '15 at 14:50
  • @Foxcat385 next question :) – samsung Jan 11 '15 at 7:12
