LineageOS 16 /system rw access

I stumbled into this problem while trying to install BusyBox. I have a OnePlus 7 pro with LineageOS 16 (rooted). But the solution might work for other devices as well.


  • enable ADB root access on your phone
  • connect phone to your computer
  • type the following into your cmd window
adb root
adb disable-verity
adb remount
  • install BusyBox to e.g. /system/xbin
  • (optional) revert changes
adb enable-verity
adb remount

Have fun!
