i was also getting the spinning but i let it spin for ~10-15 secs and it finally setup. i figured there was a last minute setup in progress. question i have is i'm currently using an Android phone hotspot and when it is setup as WPA2-PSK the omega2 does not connect but if open it does. is there something i'm missing on the security issue with connection. i did wifisetup over serial and did scan, then select hotspot, then password, then network restarts. not sure if there is anything else. btw, the new ui is great and once there works well. thanks.
i have recently become interested in the Onion Omega2+ and the various modules and plugins as well as aftermarket pcb boards which give the omega2+ greater reach into the environment.

RE: Too hot?
i have 3 omega2+ that are from the time period of the initial kickstarter release and 1 of the 3 has always run hot. it has run almost every build from the start until the current one with no difference in operating temperature range in that every build runs hot. this leads me to think that maybe some component on the board is bad. my guess is that it is a bad capacitor, although i have no idea what the actual issue is. like your unit, this one seems to operate, in respect to software , just fine.
RE: Omega2+ out of box won't produce wifi network
i'd suggest a power supply of 5V 2A minimum. usb lines from computers and/or phone chargers most of the time do not supply the current that the omega2 needs to boot up. especially at the point where the omega2 attempts to connect to a wifi router and can generally require for a brief period of time current in excess of what a usual usb line or phone charger can provide.
RE: Wifi Seems to Connect then Immediately Disconnect?
you will need to get a copy of the *.bin from the onion server somehow which requires internet. you can try to download directly from server.
http://repo.onion.io/omega2/images/ and then flash that.
look in the documentation for the instructions.
look for download to usb storage.
if you have a dock with usb then,
otherwise a serial cable will help in the transfer.
RE: Would I fry my GPS extension if I plugged it into and used it on a Raspberry Pi?
you might find some clues by researching either the hologram dash or the hologram nova. the dash was in development about the time of the onion gps module and the nova is the newest gps module which is similar usb module. there are several guides on net explaining how to setup nova on rpi which might help setup onion gps on rpi.
