Reset Vero 4K + from SSH?

I had a working Vero 4K + but it failed after running the update
Now it’s stuck ending in the sad face

I tried a USB stick and 3 different SD cards with the latest disk image
But it won’t update…
(fat, fat32, exfat? unzipped to OSMC_TGT_vero3_20201227.img)

I still have SSH access. How do I factory reset fromt here ?

sudu apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
sudo systemctl stop mediacenter
mv .kodi

No luck with there…
What can I do now ?

This will get you back to Kodi default settings. Enter the following commands with an SSH connection.

systemctl stop mediacenter
mv ~/.kodi ~/kodi.bak
systemctl start mediacenter

If needed you can restore:

systemctl stop mediacenter
mv ~/.kodi ~/kodi.bk2
mv ~/kodi.bak ~/.kodi
systemctl start mediacenter

If your original setup was restored as expected and you want get rid of the unneeded clean install you can delete that with the following command.

rm -r ~/kodi.bk2

I already did that and it doesn’t work

But I managed to add a log in the original post

Why doesn’t it update from the SD card ?
I can see the SD card from SSH

Let me answer my own question… What a noob
I just copied the image… Now with Rufus it looks better

Sounds like a step forward, let us know how you get on.

Thanks all, it’s back to health now

Besides me beeing a noob… The instruction could be a bit more detailed
