My Raspberry Pi 2 Model B with OSMC does not boot anymore. Last time I used it I watched a movie and did the upgrade. Everything seemed ok.
Now I am able to see files on my SD on MAC and with my surprise, I do not see the home folder and stuff like that (the one I see when I access to my Raspberry in ssh). I see dtb files, start_x.elf and so on.
When my Raspberry starts I see the green led blink 4 times. Reading some forum I find out it is something wrong with start_x.elf. No signal and no output on TV.
Now my question is: how I can recover the situation?
I would like to backup my /home/osmc/.kodi folder but I do not know where is it on the SD.
Can anyone help me to figure out how to solve this issue?
Thanks in advance for help.
After 30 years working with computers fear is never irrational
A restore like this has always surprises.
In fact, I have issues.
I installed OSMC and it worked.
Then connected via SSH and done the following:
mv .kodi .kodi.backup
copied the original .kodi + some other files in my home.
I got a sad emoticon that appears repeatedly on TV. in kodi.log I have the following error lines:

I have the impression that is something related to skin settings that cannot be uploaded. I had estuary skin in my old installation.
I had several times the same issue after a power-fail.
Edit the config.txt file and insert a line with the text: start_x=1 in it.
You need another computer to do this.
To @ooZee about his comment below here. Be careful being arrogant mister. In the discussion they let someone reinstall OSMC unnecessarily. Let me tell you that there is a problem with OSMC that under certain circumstances the config.txt file will be emptied. Second, old threads are useful for other people looking for answers so what is wrong about my comment?
