The following guide or recipe requires shell access to your FydeOS installation, therefore “developer mode” is assumed to be enabled.

In FydeOS, if you need to modify system files or perform custom operations, you must first disable root file system verification. This step is taken for security reasons, aimed at preventing system stability and security issues that could arise from unauthorized modifications. Here are the detailed instructions:

  1. Press Control + Alt + T on your FydeOS desktop to open the terminal.
  2. Type shell and hit Enter to access the shell environment.
  3. Enter sudo -i to get root permissions.
  4. Execute /usr/sbin/ disable-rootfs-verification to turn off root file system verification.
  5. Reboot your device.
