Omega doesn't to appear to be working



  • Just unpacked my shipment.
    Following the Getting started instructions
    Plugged in the USB cable switched on light on thew dock comes on but Amber light on Omega board does not blink
    and no Omega access showing in WiFi list.
    What next?



  • Hi Scott,

    Would you be able to try to connect the Omega to your computer, and copy and paste the output of the serial terminal here? General steps are as follows:

    1. Turn the switch on the Dock to the OFF mode.
    2. Connect the Omega to your computer.
    3. Connect to Omega's serial terminal (On the Get Started Guide Follow Steps 1-3 on "Setting up using Command Line – OSX", or Steps 1-5 on "Setting up using Command Line – Windows", or Steps 1-4 on "Setting up using Command Line – Linux")
    4. Turn the switch on the Dock to the ON mode.
    5. At this point you should see a bunch of text being displayed in your serial terminal. Just copy and paste that here, and we will help you debug it.

    I am really sorry about the issue you are facing, and we will do everything to get it resolved as soon as possible.

    Boken.



  • Hi Boken

    Bad news my on/off switch on Expansion Dock broke off, good news I also have the mini dock so used that.
    Here is the dump.

  • @Scott-Jordan Seems like that the Omega has been flashed with the wrong firmware. Can you try to see if you are able to login the console with the password "admin".

    Please let me know!



  • Do you mean the Putty terminal?

    login to root with password admin? then no this does not work

    If not How do I get the console



  • @Scott-Jordan said:

    Initializing USB Mass Storage driver...

    Do you have a USB Key plugged into the Omega while you are booting up?



  • It is plugged into my Laptop USB using the small USB socket on the Omega nothing in the large USB socket.



  • Hi @Scott-Jordan, it seems like your Omega is running the firmware that we use to test the Omega during production. We have sent out an email to the manufacturing engineers to find out the root password for this console. We will let you know as soon as they respond. From there, we will do an upgrade of the firmware to the production version, and everything should work.

    I apologize for the inconvenience this has caused!



  • Thank's Boken, no problem.



  • Hi @Scott-Jordan, can you try logging in again. This time, try the password 5up.

    Cheers!



  • I too have an Omega that does not boot up properly. The password provided here "5up" worked to log in, but now I need to flash the latest version of the firmware on it, where can I get this and the instructions on how to do so? Also, worrisome is the fact that during boot, the Atheros came up with MAC address FF:FF:FF:FF:FF:FF, is there NVRAM I have to address as well? HALP.



  • @Andrew-Donnelly Not 100% sure if this is the problem, but having managed to logon to your Omega, have you tried using the oupgrade command?



  • @Kit-Bishop It does not exist.

    I also found this guide on another thread:

    @Boken-Lin said:

    @Daniel-Anner I don't have the guide written yet. We will make sure we do that next week.

    For the time being, here is a short guide:

    1. Ensure that the Expansion dock is in the OFF position
    2. Plug ethernet expansion to the expansion dock
    3. Connect your computer to the Omega with the ethernet expansion via ethernet cable
    4. Connect the micro USB cable to the Expansion Dock
    5. Start serial terminal
    6. Switch the Expansion dock to ON position
    7. At this point you will see some text appear in your serial terminal IMMEDIATELY PRESS ANY KEY ON YOUR COMPUTER. This will interrupt the normal booting sequence and put you into the uboot.
    8. Type httpd to start the httpd service in uboot. A message should tell you that a server is hosted in 192.168.1.1.
    9. Open up the browser on your computer, and navigate to http://192.168.1.1, here you will see an interface that allows you to upload and re-flash the firmware.

    This guide is not complete. There is no "httpd" on the bootloader I have (same as the other guy here, pre-release build on this Omega, it also had 2 bent pins). The u-boot does include tftpboot so if there was an image I could throw onto my local TFTP server, I could boot this thing off the network and get the oupgrade command.

    Here's my Omega's output thus far:

    It's on the local network now through the Ethernet Expansion, and I have a local TFTP server on my router (pfSense), but I have no bootable image, the image on the Omega currently is the same one that the other guy in this thread posted, it's the pre-release bench test version. I need an official bootable version I can dump on TFTP or else this thing is useless. Oupgrade does not exist in the loaded firmware, and httpd does not work on this bootloader:

  • @Andrew-Donnelly Sorry that didn't work. :-( I'm far from an expert and am still learning lots by trying. Hope you resolve your problems.

    Thanks for the try, it's just frustrating because out of the 2 I've opened, 1 is basically DOA, and there's nothing I can do until I get a TFTP-loadable version that I can run oupgrade on to reflash the device. I work with this kind of stuff every day at work, and we have something similar called netflash, but again, we produce the devices, so we have the firmware and TFTP servers everywhere.

    Some good news, I can at least get httpd running on the pre-release, but because there's no files, I'm immediately returned a 404. Hah.


  • administrators

    @Andrew-Donnelly you're able to get httpd running with the Ethernet Expansion?

    Download the latest firmware from: http://repo.onion.io/omega/images/omega-v0.0.3-b213.bin
    Use that to reflash your Omega.



  • @Lazar-Demin I think you misunderstood. I'm not getting httpd in U-Boot, I'm getting httpd in the pre-release firmware that I posted a snapshot of the output of. If you read line by line my 2 console outputs, you'll see which httpd server I'm starting. I'm already booted into the pre-release bench-test linux before I can run it. Please read the output I provide you, again, I work on this kinda stuff for a living, so the output I give you should be useful, make use of it or it's for naught.

    I will say this, that filename is super helpful, since now I think I can tftpboot off that and manually push the firmware by invoking an upgrade from the console! And U-Boot refuses to directly load that firmware update file, dang.

    I have a question, can I use dd to flash this .bin file to the "DOA" Omega? I mean I can get into the pre-release environment, I can get on the network without issue, heck, it looks like there's enough facilities here to pull the image across the network to load it, so what say you and your team? /dev/mtd2 ?

    Well I've been playing around and trying to get this thing flashed. I'm still able to get into U-Boot so provided a bootable tftpboot image can be made available, I can quickly write up instructions on how to recover the device from scratch if needed.



  • @Boken-Lin OK that password worked, now what :-)



  • @Scott-Jordan Ok, next, we will be sending you an ethernet expansion. Is your address the same as the one we have sent the Omega to previously? Once you have gotten the ethernet expansion, we will show you how to flash your firmware with it.



  • Yes same address, thank you
