safe mode, and now?

  • I managed to recreate the error - but still no idea what is causing it.

    Edit the SD card on *another* machine.


    Code
    1. cd /storage/kodi/userdata
    2. cp profiles.xml profiles.xml.orig
    3. rm profiles.xml
    4. touch profiles.xml


    Place SD card in RPi and boot. It should start up in safemode.


    To return to normal operation:


    Code
    1. cd /storage/kodi-FAILED/userdata
    2. rm profiles.xml
    3. cp profiles.xml.orig profiles.xml

    Now reboot and Kodi should start normally.
