Hello,

I am using imx8mq in android8.1.  Now I want to remount /system to rw. I use the following command

1|evk_8mq:/dev/block # mount -o rw,remount /system    

but the result is:                        
mount: '/system' not in /proc/mounts

Who can tell me how to do to remount /system?

Thanks!

Alternatively you can set both device and mountpoint to the command:

# mount -o rw,remount /path/to/the/partition /system
