Unfiltered root access?


is there any way to get a direct, unfiltered and unsupervised OS-level root access to Home Assistant OS? I moved from “controlled by me” -docker to HAssOS on an RPi3B some month ago and I’m having loads of problems with the system freezing or getting extremely slow. Unfortunately, that also often impacts the supervised SSH access which makes it impossible to do any live debugging. I’m really frustrated and pondering scrapping HAssOS…


You can connect a monitor and keyboard and type login at the prompt.


You are my hero! Thanks!!!

More cumbersome but more practical in the long run is

That only work in local, then? Never managed to get login doing anything via ssh (not the addon)

I’m not sure, I’ve never tried.

I’m connected via local monitor and root login but I can’t edit /etc/usb_modeswitch.conf' file via vi` getting message its read only. Any idea to gain write access ?
want to perform this action to switch the modem mode
