read only file system for internal memory

6 posts in this topic

So I'm trying to get ssh keys to work on this thing, and I've installed BTEP as my ssh client, but unfortunately when I run ssh it looks for keys in the folder ./.ssh whereas my keys are saved in the folder /data/data/com.magicandroidapps.bettertermpro/home/.ssh/, since ~ on the terminal points to that folder

The folder ./.ssh doesn't exist, and when I try to create it and copy my keys over, I just get a read only file system error.

How do you go about removing the read only file system thing on this device?

Well you could dick about with mount commands but personally I prefer to just use Root Explorer which has a couple of little toggle buttons for R/O & R/W

I also use Root Explorer to mount system as r/w but it isn't free. A free alternative is to install Busybox and then use a terminal to do a sudo mount.

You need to extract the boot.img from whatever rom you are using, make the changes, create a new ramdisk, make a new boot.img then update the rom again with it ... / lives on the ro boot partition.

Not possible to relocate the location of the .ssh directory ?

So I got the root file manager since it seemed useful, and made a .ssh folder in /

Unfortunately that didn't solve the problem.

On linux you can change the .ssh folder by editing a setting in the /etc/ssh/ssh_config or something like that, but such a file does not exist on my android device. The /etc/ssh folder doesn't even exist.
