Thanks for your explanation! In the table of Pins that needs to be floating, GPIO7 anf GPIO8 are mentioned, although those pins are not marked as GPIO pins in the pinout diagram. Is this just a phrasing error, or are the wrong numbers stated?
Also about the floating input pins during boot mode, and please excuse my me for still being early at the learning curve, this only applies to input pins right? How do I set these pins as output pre, or during, the boot sequence?
A more specific question for my specific case, and don't hesitate to ask me to move this to a separate question if you think I should: If I connect an (intended) output pin to a NPN transistor gate over some 1k resistance, and connects the emitter to ground, is the pin considered floating or not? Can I hard wire this setup to GPIO1 and still boot up the omega?
This morning I turned on my Omega, entered ping repo.onion.io and thenopkg uptate. Update did not happen, I was upset and turned off Omega. Now I turned on Omega and it successfully booted without errors, and the update was also performed. I hope that my problem has finally been resolved. But if she comes back, I will return to you. Thank you for your help.
