Broken system

Good day!

I was trying to fix something and ended up creating more problem as always.

I followed up a tutorials:

Create a custom udev rule: /etc/udev/rules.d/21-jade.rules
ATTRS{idProduct}==“55d4”, ATTRS{idVendor}==“1a86”, SUBSYSTEM==“usb”, TEST==“power/control”, ATTR{power/control}=“on”, GROUP=“plugdev”, MODE=“0660”
And then run:

udevadm control --reload-rules && udevadm trigger

Unplug Jade and reboot your machine for the changes to take effect.

Unfortunately this kinda broke my system I’m still able to see the welcome page and put my password in but after that the system froze and I can’t access to anything anyway I can repair it? Thank you

Perhaps you can revert the change to get back to a functioning system and try to find a working solution to your initial issue.

In this case, you can access the TTY and then remove that file.

That exactly what I’m trying to do but I also have no idea how to do it…
I try to boot into a iso but no luck there! Can I access to the console before log in?

You can switch to a TTY even after you login. Just press CTRL + ALT + F1, and it will bring you to tty1 where you will be asked to login. If you want to access tty2, press CTRL + ALT + F2 instead.

Failed to start virtual console setup I got that message…

So you weren’t able to boot? In that case, you would need to boot into a live environment, and then chroot.

What does this mean?

You gave up thinking about it?
You couldn’t boot up the live iso?
Or, you could boot up live iso but couldn’t remove the file?

I can boot until there but that’s about it…

Okay. That’s good. What happens if you log in?

I get stuck here which is weird

Is this what happened when you tried to access a TTY with CTRL+ALT+Fn?

Correct ctrl atl fn F1

Okay. For now, just boot into the live iso first. You can delete /etc/udev/rules.d/21-jade.rules from the live environment.

This is what happens when I try to boot into a iso… And the cap lock keep blinking…

Not sure what it might be wrong there. Faulty live usb maybe?

Perhaps getting to a root shell from grub boot menu (or systemd-boot menu) might help.

You can press e on the boot entry on the menu and add init=/bin/sh to the kernel boot parameters and boot up the system.

When you get into the root shell, remove the udev file you made earlier.

:warning: Be careful with what you do in the root shell!
