    CM 6.0 can have scripts or even scriptybox. Just not by default however -- but its really easy to add these features.

    For those that are curious:

    You can actually type anything you want in there, the mount command doesn't care!
    Normally, when you mount a device, you need to specify the device node, the filesystem type, and the mountpoint (or those options need to be either detected or specified in the fstab). When you use the "remount" option, however, you're just changing the mount options (ro to rw), so the device node is not needed (it's already mounted).

    The version of mount included with android by default requires all three options, even though only the mountpoint gets used when you use the remount option. The version of mount that CM uses is actually busybox instead - which does not require the extraneous options.

    The mtdblock3 / mtdblock4 discrepancy came around because different devices use different partitioning schemes. Somebody at some point tried out a command for a different device, and since it worked fine, they assumed it was correct, posted it online somewhere, and it propogated. Not a big problem, since the only time it gets used is in this remount case, and it's ignored anyway.

    In summary, if you use the busybox version of mount (like CM does) all you need to type is this:
    Code:
    mount -o rw,remount /system

    Thank you for the info. I also saw something like this posted by Camel way back and he just used 'null' for basically the same reason, i.e.:
    Code:
    mount -o remount,rw /dev/null /system
    but yours is even shorter and if there's no harm, then all the merrier.

    Thx again.

    Or just do what I do, use ADB for everything, it's so much easier.

    Code:
    adb remount
    Profit!

    Only thing I use terminal emulator for is to run an automatic zipaligning script and even then I might just run it from adb if I'm already there pulling and pushing files.
