Omega2+ does not power-down by command and can't change default password



  • I started playing around with the just-arrived Omega2+ and I noticed the following:

    1. poweroff and power-down commands both reboot the omega instead of shutting down.
    2. Password change made in Settings -> Security Settings in the console is never saved (forces me to use the default password).

    Firmware version is 0.1.10 (b160) R1

    Are these known problems and are there any fixes?

    The second one is already listed, the first one isn't, but is common knowledge in this community, and should be listed.

    Workaround for the second one, use console terminal, ssh o serial connection, and use passwd.



  • The hardware is not capable of powering itself down.

    At best the firmware could be made to halt, perhaps a slowed clock and an infinite loop or at the outside an actual execution halt.
