git : “index file corrupt” [solved]

If you have problem with git commands like ‘ git status,git pull etc. and got error message as follows,

$ git status
error: bad index file sha1 signature
fatal: index file corrupt

Don’t worry. Just remove your git index file and restore. To be safe make a backup of your index ‘.git/index ‘ before remove.

rm .git/index
git reset
