  • Hey there,

    I was tweaking the settings on my RPi1, I tried to allocate more space for the OS and overclocking in an attempt to clear up some video/sound lag. When I complete a reboot, ES locks up at the system selection screen. I'm still able to connect from my laptop through putty and enter terminal commands, so I was hoping someone could advise me on how I can open the RPi settings to get them restored to default.


  • The config.txt is located in the Boot folder, you can edit this via ftp or by putting the SD card into your PC.

    I had an issue with locking up as well when trying to overclock my rpi3b with the recommended overclock settings I've seen on several sites. I ended up just reverting to default. it's always a good idea to make a backup of your config.txt before editing just in case something like this happens.

    hope this helps.
