    How To Change File Permissions Using Root Explorer?

    Ok guys.

    So I'm trying to install the cool live wallpaper and weather widget from the Transformer onto my xoom as referenced by the thread over at xda. He says to move the files to system/app using root explorer and then change the file permissions to match the rest of the files there.

    The problem I'm having is that I can't change the file permissions because the system files are set to read only. I've tried going to the root directory and changing that file permissions but I get the same thing.

    "System permissions cannot be changed because the file system is read-only"

    Can anyone help me figure out how to get around this? I really like that live wallpaper...:P

    There should be a button on the top left that says r/w, click it and you should be good to go.
