My new Vero 4K+ was crashing (with the frowny face) about a minute after startup. Then it froze completely (remote control, ssh). I did a hard reset and now it won’t boot.
I managed to recover the system using the toothpick method once but the same scenario repeated. Now even the toothpick doesn’t help. The installer freezes half way through the installation.
Before the device was bricked, I managed to take a quick peek at the log:
