Slate AX Read Only file system

Hi all,
I think I have a similar issue to this post GL-SFT1200 Opal file system becomes read only

I’m unable to change any settings on the device, looks like I have a read only file system. What is the fix for this please? The device is remote and I don’t have immediate physical access so a remote fix would be great if there is one!

I think line /dev/ubi0_2 should be rw?
Any help and guidance is greatly appreciated.

For comparison:

root@slateax:~# mount | grep /dev/ubi0_2
/dev/ubi0_2 on /overlay type ubifs (rw,noatime)

Full output:

root@slateax:~# mount
mtd:ubi_rootfs on /rom type squashfs (ro,relatime)
proc on /proc type proc (rw,nosuid,nodev,noexec,noatime)
sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw,nosuid,nodev,noexec,noatime)
tmpfs on /tmp type tmpfs (rw,nosuid,nodev,noatime)
/dev/ubi0_2 on /overlay type ubifs (rw,noatime)
overlayfs:/overlay on / type overlay (rw,noatime,lowerdir=/,upperdir=/overlay/upper,workdir=/overlay/work)
tmpfs on /dev type tmpfs (rw,nosuid,relatime,size=512k,mode=755)
devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,nosuid,noexec,relatime,mode=600,ptmxmode=000)
debugfs on /sys/kernel/debug type debugfs (rw,noatime)
bpffs on /sys/fs/bpf type bpf (rw,nosuid,nodev,noexec,noatime,mode=700)
pstore on /sys/fs/pstore type pstore (rw,noatime)

firmware 4.4.6-release1

Thought so. Will try a uboot recovery to sort it.

Shoot a follow-up post if that sorts it, yeah?
