[Resolved] Reflashing w/o switch next to impossible
For those of you having experienced the broken switch be forewarned flashing your firmware without the switch is next to impossible if not downright impossible. You can not catch the reflash portion of the tutorial "De-Brick the Omega with Ethernet Expansion" without the power switch. By the time you open the serial port window the 3 second window has long since passed.

You can use the Reset button once you have connected the Omega to the USB cable and opened the serial port, in the exact same way that you would use the power switch to turn the unit on. The same U-boot prompt will then show up with the 3 second interrupt window, a few seconds after you have pressed the Reset switch.
