Root access via SSH (read-only)

Hi,

I'm connected to my RPI3b+ over ssh, however it doesn't seem as though I can actually modify files or SCP files to the Pi due to the SDCard is mounted in read-only.

Is there a way around this? I'd like to modify my boot/config.txt to enable some properties and transfer some .apk files I copied from the google play store.

I realize that I can do this through FileManager -> Editor w/ superUser permissions but I'd like the SSH to function in the way I described.

Thanks,
Keith

  • Best I could do was copy a remote copy of config.txt over to the device over SCP:

    scp -i my_private_key config.txt root@192.168.1.100:/storage/emulated/0/Download/config.txt
    config.txt

  • Would I need simply need to modify the fstab.rpi3 file in order to make the boot partition rw instead of ro?

    From:
    /dev/block/mmcblk0p1 /boot vfat ro wait

    To:
    /dev/block/mmcblk0p1 /boot vfat rw wait

  • Did you try re-mounting at runtime?
    mount -o rw,remount /boot
    mount -o rw,remount /system
