I recently bought two Vero 4K+ units, one of which fails to boot. At first, the unit booted as far as the sad face screen, which would flick on and off. Next, I attempted to reinstall OSMC from SD and USB according to the instructions on this site, but the unit would just power off after the initial “Please wait” screen. I then tried the reinstallation troubleshooting tips (renaming kernel.img, holding down the reset button), and now the unit boots to a black screen, with the following message in white text:
‘Waiting for root filesystem device/dev/vero-nand/root’
'Fatal Error: could not find root filesystem device/dev/vero-nand/root- if this is USB install please check USB drive is connected"
Yes, I used the toothpick method as described in the troubleshooting section - I inserted the toothpick into the hole nearest the HDMI socket, pressed down until I heard a small click, kept it held down, and powered on the unit. The unit then booted as far as the “Please Wait” screen and stayed there - reinstallation never started. I waited a minute or so, then unplugged it. Now, if I power the unit on normally (no toothpick) it boots to the black screen with white text.
New here. Passthrough with my Anthem mrx510 didn’t work, Double checked all the settings but the reciever stays on PCM, with dd dts, dts-ma etc. I tried to downgrade the firmware to the december 2018 release.
I now have exact the same problem as jlcjlc98. Also used the toothpick, nearest HMDI hole method to install the new firmware I created with the tool on a USB stick, screenshot of the files the same as jlcjlc98. A waiting screen appeared for two minutes and I turned it off. Now I’m stuck with the black screen with fatal error text message… what to do?
