    For those of you unfamiliar with prime's awesome kernel here is the link to what I am talking about http://www.droidforums.net/forum/cyanogenmod/127262-kernel-deprimed_test-break-if-you-can.html

    His kernel allows the user to change from SV to LV by running a terminal command that creates a file specifying the voltage/speeds called "20overclock" and creates this file in /system/etc/init.d

    However, when me and other users runnign 4.2 PE try this, we get an error stating the system is read-only.

    SU is performed and given, and the system has been mounted as RW, but still does not work.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    I second this! I'm having the exact same problem. I even went into elite settings and set the system as Read/Write.

    @ dpaine

    Are you having any other issues with this kernel? The only issue I have is when I delete an email, it doesn't really move it to the trash.

    I had this same issue with PE 5.2 ... try going into root explorer and mount the sys as R/W in there.. that seemed to work for me (i really didn't think it was going to at first, but it did)... its worth a shot
