I got an idea from the ArchWiki article on Password Recovery (https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Password_Recovery
While in U-Boot, try appending this line to the end of the bootargs variable:
- Code: Select all
Then boot your plug without saving the U-Boot environment variables. Ideally this would give you a command prompt as root on your plug, then you can change or delete the root password as described in the ArchWiki article linked above.
I have not tried this on my plug, but I do not believe that it can make your situation any worse.
