Thanks @Venet and @luz for your comments. I can see from your other posts that you've been frunstrated by this issue for a long time.
I'm not sure that I'd have bought an Onion Omega2+ if I'd thought it was effectively a closed-source system.
Could you please shed some light on how to compile staging drivers?
I'm trying to get r8188eu to compile from staging and haven't had much success.
Uncomment the first line (reboot_core)
Save the file
opkg install kmod-i2c-gpio-custom
EDIT: that module needs kernel 4.9.44. On my omega i have 4.4.46. I don't know if it's safe to upgrade.
