sudo mount -u -o rw /
Then remove the directory. I was able to create a directory in root, haven't tried removing one that way.
I'd reboot after you're done (root will be remounted RO)
You lost me a bit there...
I should use "sudo mount -u -o rw /" in Terminal in macOS, after disabling SIP, or does that matter?
1. Disable SIP (recovery mode, csrutil disable).
2. Mount drive for read and write (sudo mount -uw /).
3. Assign rights for read and right ([sudo] chmod - R 775 /your\ folder\).
4. Delete it ([sudo] rm -rf /your\ folder\).
5. Enable SIP (recovery mode, csrutil enable).
"sudo" in square brackets means it may be required (like in my case) while others report they managed to get result without it.
Thank you. I can now delete the BLOATware that Apple is inflicting on what may beome a decent operating system.
I ended up piecemealing a solution together from all the feedback and suggestions:
1) Booting into Recovery, disabling SIP
2) Mount the Master drive, using -uw
3) Change to the mounted partition
4) Deleting the unwanted directories using rmdir -r
5) Enabling SIP
6) Reboot and be happy...
That also works to remove the bloatware (Chess, Home, News, Siri, Stocks, VoiceMemos) that keep this from being a decent workplace operating system. This assumes you have booted into Recovery mode and disabled SIP.
1. Restart the machine in normal operating mode.
2. sudo mount -uw /
3 cd /System/Applications
4. sudo rm -rf Appname.app
5. Voila! No bloatware
6. Command-R to enter Recovery mode
7. Re-enable SIP
8. Restart to get rid of left over icon place holders
9. Ask your people if the can do their normal work on the new beta.
