Upload firmware via serial?



  • Hi everyone, is there a way to upload the firmware to the device via serial (kermit or tftp [not sure how to get that setup honestly])? I backed the kickstarter and got the mini dock, oled, and servo expansion, didn't really think I'd need the ethernet expansion as the Onion Omega has wifi.

    Anyway, when I was finally able to boot it up for the first time a few nights ago (yea, I've been busy) I was greeted with this:

    From other topics here it seems like I'm in that group of people who got an Onion Omega with the manufacturer firmware on it instead of the Onion firmware. I've tried to get the firmware onto the Onion Omega by using a USB stick, but I can't mount it (the stick was formatted with FAT, I haven't tried ext2 yet). I was told by @Lazar-Demin that I needed to buy the ethernet expansion card. I can do, and will do if that's my last option, but after backing for $64 I'd really prefer not to shell out another $15 just get a working device.

    I have a Pi Model B and an UDOO board as well if I could bridge an ethernet connection or something (which honestly would be pretty cool) similar using other devices. Greatful for any help people can offer.

    @Jason-Porter Other that using the Ethernet Expansion, you can try to connect the Ethernet data signals from another device directly. There is a little bit of circuit building required as the DC current between the Omega and the other device needs to be decoupled, but users have had success: https://community.onion.io/topic/130/debrick-with-serial/8
