Network config hosed, need access to rootfs - HELP?

I wasn’t exactly sure if this is the right place to post this, I apologize if this is the wrong place.

I’ve been working on setting up wlan0 on the TK1 and after a reboot I lost access via SSH through eth0. I’m sure I muxed up the config.

I’m trying to find a way to remotely mount the rootfs. I thought I could do that by connecting the micro-usb to a working Linux system and be able to mount it. However, I can’t seem to find directions on how to do that besides doing a of it…which I do NOT want to do.

Is it possible to mount the rootfs via the micro-usb from another linux machine so that I can correct my typos?


It’s not answering the question you posed, but a serial cable would give you access to the command line.

Yeah I was thinking about trying that…I’ll see what I can do. Do you know the setup for the comm port? Does it require a null modem cable or just normal serial connection?

What are the setup params for the serial connection speed? 8/n/1 ? or what? I haven’t tried this before with the TK1

Looks like it is NULL modem, and 115200/8/N/1 working on this method now. Thanks for the reminder…
