When postmarketOS is reinstalled, a new ssh host key will be generated. Your SSH client will detect this, and refuse to connect, requiring you to run

To disable this check, and to allow you to connect by running
ssh postmarketos, add the following to your
Host postmarketos HostName 172.16.42.1 StrictHostKeyChecking no UserKnownHostsFile=/dev/null

reboot -f recovery
