I followed this tutorial to make the SD card of my pi read only. However when I plug in a USB drive stick, which is then auto mounted by the usbmount package as /media/usbX , the usb stick is also read only.

How do I get it to automount as read and write?

I guess it is read-only because it is mounted below / And / is readonly because /etc/fstab has:

proc            /proc           proc    defaults          0       0
/dev/mmcblk0p2  /               ext4    ro,noatime        0       1

    I would remove usbmount -- is currently unmaintained and the last release was 2007 -- and look into creating your own udev rule if you want automounting, or just mount it however you want with mount. – goldilocks Jun 19 '15 at 12:51
