    Ok i have spent the last 4 hours trying to edit the vold.fstab file, when I access it using ES file explorer or total commander I can't do anything with it due to permission problems.

    The thing is I have tried to remount the /system directory as read/write using many different ways:

    - Downloaded and used this app (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.beansoft.mount_system&hl=en_GB) but cannot edit the vold.fstab file stil.

    - I also downloaded the terminal emulator app and followed this guide (http://www.ehow.com/how_12065132_to-mount-system-rw-android.html) but after doing that I still cannot edit the or delete the vold.fstab file within /system/etc


    help is very much appreciated!!

    Have you checked your root-permission?

    You can also download the latest Redmi ROM, unzip it's contents.
    Edit the file and rezip + sign. And then flash the zip
