Jolla tablet issue

Hello, bumped into the classic update issue. Could not believe the update to the latest Pallas-Yllästunturi was still going on and shut down the tablet. Did not remember to check backround lighting. Now the tablet does start anymore. Can someone point me to existing instructions how to overcome this issue? I wish Jolla implemented some sort of hourglass feature to work around this issue in the future, if it is not too late.

This may help you;

Thanks a lot for this link @Edz!

Hi, unfortunately Recovery Mode does not open. Telnet cannot connect. The tablet shows “RECOVERY: Connect…” , though. I am using EndeavourOS Linux. What else can I do?

You need to activate the virtual ethernet interface on your linuy machine and afterwards you can connect via telnet. try to ping 10.42.66.66
the tablet should answer you

How to do the first, virtual ethernet?

When you connect your tablet in recovery mode, your Linux notebook get automatically new ethernet device. You need to choose this device in connection manager. Thats all. So like you youse your WLAN or other network interaces…

I don’t think I have any connection manager. Probably I need to do it manually, but I have no idea how the needed devices are called and where they reside in this Linux.

I gave ifcfg command on enp5s0 interface and suddenly ping started working unless it is a looped interface. Anyway, telnet is rejected.
