    Assuming you are rooted and ran su in the terminal, you might have to use the "sysrw" command to mount system as read-write. Then sysro afterwards.

    Try mount -o remount,rw /system. Or just use Titanium Backup or Root Explorer.

    Root Explorer is your friend. Being rooted and not installing that is a major disservice to yourself.
