    Droid running Froyo 2.2 with the Verizon 2.3.20 system update installed.

    I wanted to uninstall some of the bloatware Verizon so thoughtfully included on my Droid without giving me an option to uninstall.

    I successfully rooted my Droid using Doroot and tested my success using Wireless Tether, which did give me the Super User prompt.

    I installed Android Terminal Emulator and typed su mount- o remount,rw /system at the prompt, but it still denied me permission.

    Why am I being denied permission if I am indeed rooted?

    Thanks.

    You have to type "su" and then hit enter first

    Thank you. That is some progress. I got the super user permission box.

    Now the problem is I typed in
    and it says,
    Thanks again.

    I'm not possitive but I think the command line is longer than that, I just don't remember offhand what it was.

    the dash is supposed to be in front of the o, not attached to the end of mount. That command string is pretty much saying "mount /system with the options remount and read/write", hence the -o is a flag that denotes you want to use options.
