Move downloaded file into system root directory in Android

I'm currently using RootTools to try and move and file that's downloading into the Downloads Folder into the System Directory

Command command = new Command(0, "cp -f " + Environment.DIRECTORY_DOWNLOADS +"/old.html" + " /system/new.html");

But for whatever reason, this doesn't actually work .

Any ideas?

The reason it wasn't working was because /system is mounted as read-only. I had to remount it with this

mount -o remount,rw /system
