Hi all, I edited /etc/fstab to mount sdcard in /mnt/sdcard . This is the row I added to fstab file :

            /dev/mmcblk1p1  /mnt/sdcard  ext4   defaults   0 0

After reboot the phone doesn't boot. I see the led on with a black display.

What should it be the problem?

How can I come back to delete the added fstab row?


EDIT: I solved by using the recovery telnet console. You can find a tutorial on how to use telnet console in the Markkyboy comment below. When started the telnet session :

       1) select 4 (Shell)
       2) mount -t btrfs /dev/mmcblk0p28 /mnt/
       3) vi /etc/fstab
       4) removed the line I added 
       5) exit and reboot

I have again my working system.

I see you got bitten by systemd... Anyway you should be able to fix that from the recovery console. There should be instructions here somewhere for that.
