    All this shows what an unusual operation this is, although doable with the good help of the devs.
    That's exactly what the line containing the words "read only filesystem" is saying.

    Hi Nick, here's what's going on. To protect people from themselves, the filesystem where the phone's operating system lives is read only by default. This can be changed temporarily with yet another linux command. I'm going to add two more lines to bluenote's instructions.

    Note that I do not know if it's safe to rerun the VKB.sh script- someone else will have to answer that question.

    4.6 Type "mount -o remount,rw /" at the linux command line.

    5.5 Type "mount -o remount,ro /" at the linux command line. (if you miss this step, the "/" or root filesystem will mount read only again the next time you restart your phone)

    Thanks fellas, I'm glad the phone not working properly isn't just me.

    I'll have another session with it in a few hours. Thank you all for your help and patience.

    Anyone happen to know the answer to that one? Don't want to get stuck in in case it damages the phone.

    Many thanks, bluenote, lagoldste and Shifty Axel. The vkb is now working perfectly and is completely stable, thanks to you guys.
