VollaPhone cron job
I have a problem with the cron job. When I use the command “crontab -e” it create a new folder with a new crontab under /tmp. For example: /tmp/crontab.t5WgJT/crontab.
I can't move it into var/spool/cron. And I cant't change the permission.
Under /tmp the cronjob isn't execute and after a reboot it is away.
What can I do?
Thanks for reading and help.

Hi, the rootfs is read only in Ubuntu Touch. I never used cron with my phone, so I don't know what options are left.
The easy (and dirty) way is to remount the filesystem to RW and add your cron job then set it back to read only. It should work, but you'll have to redo this after a system update.
Ubuntu Touch is pushed as an image so the system part is entirely overwritten ; hence the read only to avoid data loss.
Thanks for answering.
I can't set the root system to RW. This was my second idea, I tried. This i mean with "I cant't change the permission."

@pinguin Try UT Tweak Tool from the OpenStore. It should work for you.

And even if you make / writable, you will loose changes with the next OTA upgrade, so it makes no sense for production - what are you trying to do?
I want to sync my cardDAV contacts. The sync goes fine, but I would like to do it automatically every day.
@flohack Do you have a good idea to handle my problem?
@pinguin Well you could use a nextcloud account from one of the available client apps and synchronize through that.
@emphrath I use owncloud. I think, it is only possible to sync calendar. This operates very well, but I don't see the same option for contacts.
@pinguin I use UBsync from the Openstore to sync my cellphone (including calendar) with my nextcloud server. Works fine.
