    Merc has gone into Read Only Mode

    So after attempting multiple different things, ranging from a factory reset, erasing the internal storage, installing new apps. You name it nothing persisits. What it looks like is something has locked my file system or possible a partition into a ready only state as nothing persists. I think this is the root of all my evil. So now my question is how can I fix this and change the ready only state and make it writable. I will also mention I never rooted me phone never installed a custom recovery or ROM on this specific phone (have for others) it was completely factory and just one day this started happening for no apparent reason. Its the craziest thing I have ever seen (well not really but you get the idea).

    Not sure if it was anything to do with the build prop as I was saying my phone was completely stock when all of a sudden it just went haywire and into this read only.state. its almost as if it a rougue program or virus that changed the read /.write permissions to.read only. If I knew enough about linux I would try to mount the proper partition and make sure I have write.access. least that's my theory anyways that's how I have done it in windows.
