Latest update put my device in read-only mode. How do I fix that?

Recommended Posts

I just update my device and rebooted.  It now is in "read only" mode.  How do I fix that?


root@renegade:/home/nifd# touch test.txt
touch: cannot touch 'test.txt': Read-only file system


Linux renegade 4.4.178-rockchip64 #4 SMP Wed May 8 19:34:01 CEST 2019 aarch64 aarch64 aarch64 GNU/Linux

Hi Steve,


This is my first post here, I recently stared using Armbian, and it is really good.  I had the same problem with my new Renegade board,  this is the solution:


-  Go to https://dl.armbian.com/renegade/archive/ 

 - Get this file: Armbian_5.75_Renegade_Ubuntu_bionic_default_4.4.174_desktop.7z , 174 is the last version that works for Renegade

-  Before upgrading, sudo apt-mark hold linux-image-arm64


The version 4.4.180/5.88 has this issue for Renegades, I am investigating.
