Escape to command line question

Hi guys I have a question please.
I pressed exit to access the command line but pressed escape before the osmc splash screen which was during the ok messages.
Is it possible to stop kodi too early by doing this, i.e. preventing all messages from appearing?
Or does: [quote=“DBMandrake, post:8, topic:12402”]
the mediacenter watchdog script that checks for pressing ESC
[/quote] only register when kodi has stopped


If you don’t want Kodi to start on boot, you can run sudo systemctl disable mediacenter.
