I am searching for a work around to boot my Omega via an USB. The documentation provide me with less then needed info. Somebody a suggestion or idea?
Using: Omega2, exp dock, macbook
(I can use ssh or web)
I am searching for a work around to boot my Omega via an USB.
Omega2+ can not boot from / via USB - you are only powered (more exactly try to power) it from USB.
Your O2+ can not boot successfully. Is this true?
If yes then you have some problem with this hardware config:
[1. your MacBook] --- [2. a USB cable] --- [3. Expansion Dock with Omega2+]
Let's suppose this [3. Expansion Dock with Omega2+] is OK.
Try to power it with
- the other USB port of the MacBook (if it has)
- another USB cable
- another PC
- a self powered USB hub
- a 5V minimum 1A Mobile Power Bank
- a 5V minimum 0.5A mobile phone charger
- if the USB ports of your FRITZ!Box 7581 router are free then try to use one of them
Please let us know: I did this or that and the result was: Success or Fail.
Let's suppose using one of the above methods your O2+ was able to boot - after 2-3 minutes the amber LED is constantly ON.
Try to connect to your O2+'s WiFi AP wit your MacBook: SSID Omega-ABCD, password 12345678
If yes try to connect your O2+ with SSH username: root@Omega-ABCD.local (or email@example.com), password: onioneer
If yes than press Enter and please let us know what you see on your MacBook's screen.
Please do not fabricate complicated theories - do something simple thing and tell us what did you do and what did happen.
I have tried another USB port, another (fresh) cable, another macbook but ..... nothing. The odd things remains that I cant see omega-xxxx in my wifi list and cant ssh firstname.lastname@example.org. Can I use the oled exp.box to SEE the omega boots?
Can I use the oled exp.box to SEE the omega boots?
No, you can't.
Did your devices [Omega2+ on Expansion Dock] ever work before at all?
