I have two rPi set up for the children and they are having some issues.
They started getting sad face reboots after we suffered a few power cuts over summer. Stupidly I neglected looking at them properly and simply rebooted them over and over until they came back and then said I would look at them properly another time.
Well, now one of them wont boot at all, just a page of text of the OSMC splash screen followed by a sad face over and over. I have tried about 30 or 40 times and no luck. The other one I can get to boot every now and then.
My plan was to get the one that does sometimes boot up and running, update it (this has been neglected too), do a backup of all of their customised interface, and transfer it to the one that doesn’t boot at all.
However, I cannot even update the one that sometimes boot. All I get is a message saying addon failed.
I didn’t know what logs would be needed, so I did the lot.
I really don’t want to lose their UI customisations because I don’t have a backup and I don’t remember what I did.
