Sad face crash loop

My vero 4k+ just started a loop of crashing, restarting kodi and then crashing again. I am able to ssh into it and was thinking of trying to looking at logs but have had no luck so far.

As to what happened, I’ve got no idea, it was doing this when I got up this morning. I have not been playing around with it and only updates when prompted, in general treating it as an appliance more or less.

I found the pastbin so here are my logs:


The problem seems to come from here

Not sure which addon is creating this. Unless you have an idea about a recent change you did maybe a clean Kodi config is your only way out.

Let’s test with 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

Fresh setup was the solution for me, thanks for the help.
