Also note that MT7688 does not have a crypto accelerator module inside to help the encryption/decryption process thus the poor CPU will have to do the hard labor.
I'd suggest: give that CPU/SoC a break and let it do what it is designed to do; no more and no less.
@Luciano-S @WereCatf told here that the devs of the Omega2 forgot to enable CONFIG_DEVMEM in the newer firmware. The last working one is 0.1.6 b137
So my guess is that it is fixed in the next release if it is indeed just a forgotten flag.
@Joris-Mulliez I agree that PHP is of no use here, however I have plans to take this further, and wanted to start with the PHP base to work into. I am taking small steps into this whole new computing world for me. Yes, I could have just had the Python write out to "index.htm" and left it there, however what I am now doing is even beyond that. I want the initial page to allow for the selection of ZIP, City, PWS, Lat/Long and to set the refresh rate. This is only a backbone to grow from.
Very straightforward and fine for the 2's even though the set up is for the 1's. Blynk are aware they need to update to the new pinout but you can use pins common to 1 and 2 for now.
The code is just slightly too big for a 2 but fine for a 2+ so anyone that has a 2 would need to find 1 or 2MB or setup the filesystem on a USB stick.
The tabs that are shown in the screenshot have video streams from our USB and IP cameras. Our main use for the video is that we are big fans of RF transmissions and it gives us a way of being 100% sure that when we made the request to control our thermostat from the other side of the world the thermostat responded as requested.
We wouldn't want to arrive at our luxury beach side villa (if we had one) to find out it was too hold or too cold because someone pressed their keyfob at the same time as we sent our RF request from the airport.
Blynk has oodles of widget these days including GPS and light sensors etc. All using free hardware i.e. your Smartphone sensors. Great system for average coders that don't want / can't port forward.
For us personally we will probably not take it further with the Omega's until the $1 docks arrive and by then it might be Omega 5 or 6. We use alternative hardware for our main thermostat systems but the Omega is quite capable, if a little expensive.
