Hey all,

i did a huge mistake by modifying my greeter.ui. I can´t access my pi anymore. The whole screen is blinking :shock: ALT+CTRL F3 or F2 or F1 are not working. SSH is not activiated yet. What can i do? I don´t want to lose my configuration. Does anybody knows how i can repair this? I already tried to use my windows pc to read the SD-Card, but i wasn´t able to locate the greeter.ui file to substitute it.

One way to access the files is to put the Raspberry Pi into single user mode by adding init=/bin/sh to cmdline.txt.

Another way is to get another SD-card and use that to boot your Raspberry Pi and then mount your original SD-card using a card reader.
Another way is to get a live Linux CD and boot your PC into Linux and use that to mount the SD-card.
