Android Bytes

…everything is a bytearray after all

After doing a little review about Total Commander, I’ve started searching and I’ve found an interesting tip on androidpolice.com: how to write to read-only partitions, such as /system, using Total Commander for Android. This is a cool feature in Root Explorer, which can be transposed in Total Commander too.

So, to re-mount partitions as read-write, you’ve got to open Total Commander and click on the last button in the button bar (the one with two arrows and some little buttons inside). This will toggle the visibility of the “Add button” button. Click it and change the Function type to “Internal Command” and in the second field, choose the Command “119 Remount (requires root access)”.. Just like in the screenshots below:

                tc_18                            tc_17

Click OK/Apply, and navigate to a read-only partition, like /system. Press the newly created button, and now the partition is writable.

Thanks to AndroidPolice for the tip!
