I was trying custom resolutions on config.txt, now I can't boot


  • I was trying to get 960x720@60 on 4:3 (or a regular 720p mode on 4:3 so I can stretch the image via remote control on my TV), messed a bit with instructions found here:

    After restarting, I'm getting no picture (neither the intro video sound).

    No big deal, I thought. But I actually cannot connect via WinSCP anymore (wireless or not) to revert my config.txt file.

    Any ideas?


  • The /boot directory is in a FAT partition that can be read on any PC. If you have a microSD reader or an SD reader and an adapter, you should be able to see the config.txt file in windows and edit it with any text editor.


  • Thanks a lot! I assumed that because it requires root access, it would be impossible to edit like that.

    Problem solved! :)
