Help! need default passwd hash for osmc

Hey, I’ve been locked out of my pi. SSH is not responding, and my TTY login osmc/osmc does not work… I think I must have changed the password at some point and I cannot remember it.

Can someone whose login password osmc/osmc works, can you please open up /etc/passwd and copy and paste the line for the osmc user?

I will have to mount on an sd reader chroot to reset the password back to osmc…




Thanks! Great piece of software you guys! Thanks so much!

For future reference you could have added init=/bin/bash to the end of the command line in cmdline.txt which would have booted you directly to a root shell. From there you could have used ‘passwd osmc’ to reset the password then remove init=/bin/bash.
