I had CoreELEC installed in the emmc and neither android (as far as i know) nor linux. At some point CoreELEC attempted to auto update to a new version and after that my VIM2 would just continually reboot.
I want to just open the image to get at all my custom settings and merge them with a new updated CoreELEC version I have installed on USB (which runs perfectly) and them move that all to emmc again.
Hmmm… I see what you mean. having decompressed and mounted that image it really IS a raw disk image.
Sadly though, I do not have a backup of this system. I got it going recently and have been to busy to back it up. Lesson learned in that regard. I might just have to take the time and redo everything manually.
Still I am interested in learning how to rescue this system from the situation I find myself in for future reference. I’d like to hear your recommendations.
