Anyway, I suspect there's not much I can do about it then, am I right?
You could do it - but it's not too easy. ;-)
You should remove / desolder 2 SMD ICs (6 pin SOT23 marking C145, 5 pin SOT23 marking UP5 - in the red box) to obtain GPIO18 and 19 near Omega's header.
After this mod you would lose the Power Dock Checking the Battery Level function. :-(
