SD card stuck in read-only on non-rooted non-dev phone.

Hope somebody here can help me.

My sd-card is mounted readonly in my G1.
It's a non-rooted and non-dev phone (default t-mobile G1).
Since I don't have root / su rights on the phone I can't remount my sd-
card in rw.
I've tried rebooting, taking the sdcard out of the phone but neither
idea works.
When I reinsert my sd-card I and run mount from the terminal emulator
I can see it as being mounted rw.
When I run the mount command again a few seconds later, it is mounted

Anyone any idea what can be done to get my phone back to being fully
useable again?

1. which folders can we safely access in a droid device?


I know that we can safely write to /data/data/app_package... however,
can the application also create folders and maybe access other folders
as well, such as system?

I could easily create an application to test that, but what i really
want to know if the official Android approach to this issue. I don't
want to assume something that will be changed in the future.

thanks for your help


2. fontconfig

There is no fontconfig in Android, period, and probably will never be.
I don't know how you can access the system font files though, I'm not sure
it's easy from the native side.
There maybe a Java API to locate them though.
