Resetting your AVADO OS
If your AVADO is completely messed up or if you just want to start from scratch - follow these steps.
- You cannot connect to the AVADO any more - you’re locked out
- You accidently uninstalled a core package and now get errors running the system
- You want to start again from a fresh install
This is an advanced procedure - only to be used when your OS needs to be fixed and is beyond repair.
Performing this procedure will remove all data that is stored in any of the previously installed packages. Make sure you have copies of your staking keys - all data will be lost !
Hook up an USB keyboard to any of the available USB ports of your AVAOD and connect a monitor using a HDMI cable to the HDMI port of the AVADO (TIP: a TV with a HDMI cable works perfect)
You will see a command prompt
Type in the username
avado and press return
AVADO login: avado Password:
avado and press return. Note that while typing your password you will not see any characters appear on the screen, this is normal.
If this is done correctly - you will get a prompt like this:
Now type this command and press enter:
wget -q -O - http://sos.ava.do/reset | sudo bash
(to clarify: that is dash q , dash captial O , then a dash, then http://sos.ava.do/reset then a pipe symbol )
You will be asked for a password
[sudo] password for avado: _
avado and press enter
Now the reinstall procedure will start - which could take up to 2 minutes to complete. When the script is done - the AVADO will be restarted and you’ll end up at the command prompt again.
When this is done - you should be able to connect back to the WiFi and the AVADO has been restored in its factory state.
