Hi all,

My Netwalker boots into the normal Ubuntu screen and then a long long long black screen and just can't boot into the Desktop.

I know there is a way using restore.sh and a Micro-SD card to recover it to the stock setting, but now I even cannot load to X.

Can anybody figure out how I could recover (or fix?) it?

Thanks in advanced.

Do you have the recovery card?

If you don't you need another Linux box with a (micro)SD card reader. Then, use this script to create the microSD recovery card which will enable you to get back to square one.


This can be run on any Linux PC like this (/dev/mmcblk0 is your card reader, change if necessary):
sudo DEV=/dev/mmcblk0 ./spider-recovery

On a sidenote, can you press Ctrl-Alt-F1 when you see the black screen and get to a console? If yes you can try to log on and fix the problem if you know what it is.
