Title: How to remount /proc to be writeable
Post by: anddontyoucomebacknomore on March 06, 2019, 02:19:34 am
I'm scared of just doing the classic

mount -o rw, remount

because proc has a special filesystem, so is there a way to remount proc in order to let a script execute stuff in it?

I don't get you .. you're scared of remounting it read/write. but you wanna remount it read/write ?

I wanted it to be writeable, so I could run a script. This is now no longer necessary, but I'll create a new topic on the subject.

And for those who it may interest: yes you can remount proc as rw just like the /system folder and it will not screw your system (even if it did because proc is temporary you would be fine after reboot)
