restoring full user mode from single user mode

I'm new to Raspbian. I wanted to experience single user mode and achieved that by adding "init=/bin/sh" to the text of the file /boot/cmdline.txt This worked fine.

I wanted to restore full user mode, but when I tried to edit /boot/cmdline.txt it didn't show the change I made, didn't show the appropriate timestamp and anyway it was read only so I could make no changes.

What am I missing?

Thanks in advance for all suggestions.

Is the /boot file system mounted read-only?

Try remounting it as read/write

Code: Select all

mount -o remount,rw /boot
or even

Code: Select all

umount /boot
mount /boot
