Wifi access on a new upgrade



  • Having issue on omega connecting to the internet - ideally I want to factory reset the device but that does not seem to be an easy task
    I would like to run

    opkg update
    opkg install onion-console-base

    but cant get connected on the internet

    On the first boot I was fine got connected to the internet downloaded and install the fireware update - set some parameters

    on further boots cant get to the device to open in the browser - Ive currently used 2 omega's and I at the same point in time with both

    cant get the device to connect to the the internet or via the serial on mac... so Im left with ssh

    so I downloaded the image locally and copied it via scp

    scp /Users/xxx/Downloads/omega2p-v0.1.9-b157.bin root@omega-2E93.local:/tmp/omega2p-v0.1.9-b157.bin

    ssh root@omega-2E93.local
    cd /tmp
    cp omega2p-v0.1.9-b157.bin omega2.bin

    root@Omega-2E93:/tmp# sysupgrade -n omega2.bin
    killall: watchdog: no process killed

    umount: can't unmount /dev/pts: Resource busy
    umount: can't unmount /dev: Resource busy
    umount: can't unmount /tmp: Resource busy

    Downloaded the latest binary and ran it on the plus works now I have access to wifi !!! :) on the first boot for some reason the browser endpoint drops on hitting the page after a reboot

    if you are not using an omega2+ then you need to download omega2-v0.1.10-b160.bin instead of omega2p-v0.1.10-b160.bin
    wget http://repo.onion.io/omega2/images/omega2-v0.1.10-b160.bin

    So for the plus
    wget http://repo.onion.io/omega2/images/omega2p-v0.1.10-b160.bin
    scp $(pwd)/omega2p-v0.1.10-b160.bin root@omega-xxxx.local:/tmp/omega2p-v0.1.10-b160.bin

    ssh root@omega-xxxx.local

    sysupgrade -n /tmp/omega2p-v0.1.10-b160.bin

    reboot the device

    then ssh into the device again >> ssh root@omega-xxxx.local
    note the updated firmware in the banner....

    and run wifisetup

    then launch the omega setup in the browser

    on reboot the browser window displays none of the icons - so its the same as my initial post but at least I can recover to a starting point to test the device
