Weather you are a dependent or not your FILING status is SINGLE either way ... what changes is the box on the 1040 saying you can be claimed as a dependent ... and this is handled in the MY INFO section of the TT program ...
Did your return reject or did your mom's return reject? If your return was Accepted as not a dependent you will need to amend it. If your mother's return rejected because you claimed yourself then she will have to print and mail her return to claim you even if you amend yours.
You need to wait for your first return to fully process and you get the first refund. Then you can Amend. So it might be a long wait. How to Amend
The only way to change to "someone can claim me" is to put it in writing on Form 1040-X Part III Explanation.
If you took any credits or deduction not allowed a dependent, you submit that change also along with any supporting forms or schedules.
