I don't know if you follow the current@ list too, but I sovled my problem:

I can note that if I said that "I can't touch the disk even in Single User
Mode"... that was right, but just because I went to single-user mode from
multi-user mode, so the kern.securelevel was always to '2' (which is very
different to boot directly to single-user mode)! Sorry for the mistake and
thanks for your reply which appeared to be the right point here.
