[Sony Xperia Tablet Z] Make /system/ writable
















Next, I needed to make /system writable on the Tablet Z.

The instructions below worked for me:


I used almost the same commands except busybox was not available on my tablet.
Instead, I used ps and kill command to remove the /sbin/ric process.

shell@android:/sdcard/hydrive $ ps | grep ric
root      308   1     1316   616   ffffffff 00000000 S /sbin/ric
u0_a171   981   295   861364 37460 ffffffff 00000000 S com.sonyericsson.textinput.uxp
u0_a157   1009  295   839100 18580 ffffffff 00000000 S com.sonyericsson.devicemonitor
u0_a159   1018  295   837388 15992 ffffffff 00000000 S com.sonyericsson.android.wakeup
u0_a32    1051  295   877932 46728 ffffffff 00000000 S com.sonyericsson.home
system    1472  295   840024 17952 ffffffff 00000000 S com.sonyericsson.usbux
u0_a32    2628  295   838152 21256 ffffffff 00000000 S com.sonyericsson.advancedwidget.clock:lockscreen
u0_a59    7295  295   837996 19768 ffffffff 00000000 S com.sonyericsson.idd.agent
u0_a162   7573  295   839820 19296 ffffffff 00000000 S com.sonyericsson.nfc

u0_a105   7592  295   843036 18636 ffffffff 00000000 S com.sonyericsson.dlna

1|shell@android:/sdcard/hydrive $ su
root@android:/storage/emulated/legacy/hydrive # kill -9 308 

NOTE: This is a temporal solution, meaning you will need to do it again after your system reboots.
