@vinaypundith - That is unfortunate.
If you install pinn-lite.zip afresh, then it overwrites recovery.cmdline with the default version that includes the `runinstaller`option. This causes PINN to wipe your fresh SD card to make it suitable for use with PINN. If you have any existing OSes installed, then this will unfortunately wipe them out.
Whenever your PINN self-updates, it does not change recovery.cmdline for this reason.
This is detailed in the documentation ->https://github.com/procount/pinn/blob/m ... ne-options and applies to NOOBS as well.
Okay. So would I have been safe if I had kept the old recovery.cmdline and not used the one from the fresh zip?
I'm setting up a webpage and email server on a Pi 3B+ running Ubuntu Mate 18.10.

Anyone have a way to update LibreElec while retaining all content? Can I use the LibreElec image to be copied to the UPDATE folder? Thanks

You just put the latest LE image (9.0.0 img.gz as we speak) to the update folder of your machine. (LibreELEC can also use the img.gz file as an update file).

you also can use the built-in update functionality of LibreELEC. but you have to switch from auto to manual update and select the update path to be able to upgrade from v8.x to 9.0
once you have upgraded to LibreELEC 9.0 you can switch back to auto, to get 9.x updates. later to upgrade to 10.0, you have to switch to manual once again.
