If you are able to get in the command prompt, you can run:
root@edison:~# systemctl stop clloader.service root@edison:~# systemctl disable clloader.service root@edison:~# systemctl mask clloader.service
Or you can delete the files:
Are you able to enter in the command prompt? Or it reboots automatically? If you are not able to enter in the command prompt you should reflash the board.
thanks for taking the time to reply. As I mentioned I could only get into the u-boot prompt, not the shell prompt. I flashed the board from there and started again.
