extlinux.conf file error, can it be edited in bootloader?
Ok, I had a perfectly running Manjaro installed on my PBP eMMC, but decided to update the U-boot to see if it might fix a clock issue I have (likely not but I had never updated that part of the system myself). That went ok, but now instead of a black boot screen until login, I see text regarding the boot sequence. I don't want to see that, so I removed the "console=" bits in the extlinux.conf file per another Manjaro site.

Stupid stupid me, I didn't think to make a copy of the extlinux.conf file, and made a syntax error in the file, and no longer will the system boot into Manjaro!

I can get into the boot command line, but I can't see any way to edit that conf file to fix the problem, no nano, pick, vi... Is the system completely trashed now? I don't have any way to mount the eMMC in another system right now, but I could pick something up from Amazon in a few days...
