"Bad CRC" boot loop
I just received my Onion omega2 today and put it on a breadboard, vcc and gnd connected correctly as well as Tx and Rx to the lines of my usb-serial converter.
The omega2 restarts all the time and is in some kind of boot loop, pulling reset to low seems to only pause the output instead of giving more options.
No wifi access point of the omega2 appears.
This is the serial output of my omega2:
Any help is appreciated :)
@enr00-enr00 Install the latest firmware by following the instructions at http://community.onion.io/topic/1154/omega-2-usb-firmware-install-after-brick-resolved
I will try that later, as I will have to attach a usb cable (I don't have the dock).
I report later whether it worked.
What does your power supply setup look like? There are a lot of people (myself included) running without one of the Omega baseboards who have experienced boot loops due to insufficient power or power layout issues. Your problem occurs earlier in the boot cycle than mine, but any non-standard power scheme is suspect. In particular something with a 1 Amp capability, good regulation, and short leads to the Omega2 would be a good start.
I tried doing that, without success.
Somehow it seems I bricked 2 usb sticks and I don't get why:
I salvaged an old usb extension cord and connected its red wire to 5V, the black wire to GND and green wire to data+ and white wire to data-.
Both sticks are not usable anymore and don't appear on the pc anymore.
@enr00-enr00 The colours don't mean anything, they aren't standardized and each manufacturer just kind of goes with whatever colour they like. You should've checked with a multimeter that you are, indeed, connecting the correct wire to the correct pin, and that there are no shorts.
