sh: can't access tty; job control turned off

Mon Oct 06, 2014 7:53 pm

Whenever I boot up my Raspberry pi I have started getting this error message after it flashes from the rainbow screen

sh: can't access tty; job control turned off

I shorted the 7 and 8 pins once when this came up and it booted normally. But now I tried it again and it didn't work.
How can I boot up again?

Did you try reinstalling the OS? That may help if there is a software problem/corrupted files.
I looked it up and the internet seems to agree to changing a config file.
Yes, it is usually safe to add avoid_safe_mode=1 to config.txt. An exception might be if you are overclocking but other than that, just go ahead and try. You can read more about it here

The config.txt file is in /boot

I found the answer on Google, I recommend you look there first.
Blackberry tarts are sort of like raspberry pies, but they are more purple and sour.
