Mount virtual media RW?

By SP @spot2021-07-14 14:48:34.769Z

I know it is not possible from web interface, but is there a file to manually edit to change a virtual disk image to RW when mounted? Would be a nice option in the web interface at some point as well.

    This is possible but not officially supported.

    You can open up /opt/tinypilot-privileged/init-usb-gadget and find this line:

    echo 1 > "${MASS_STORAGE_FUNCTIONS_DIR}/lun.0/ro"
    

    To enable read-write, change it to:

    echo 0 > "${MASS_STORAGE_FUNCTIONS_DIR}/lun.0/ro"
    

    Then, save the file and run this command:

    sudo service usb-gadget restart
    

    Note that it's not per-mount. That will make all virtual media mounts read-write.
