people have been asking the same question for months without a reply from omega team. it's kind obvious you have done little to no research via searching the forums. anyway, as to your questions there are no official answers yet. why are headquarters in boston if they are canadian?
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: WPA2-AES not supported?
RE: Need to migrate a project from Arduino to Omega2+ Linux - any ideas
interesting concept but without specifics on what you want a omega to do its almost impossible to offer help.
RE: Connecting via serial putty inserts jibberish characters
there is a bonjour print service file that must be installed on windows boxes, macs already have that service. i'm grasping a straws here but perhaps that helps for some reason.?
RE: anyone able to install PyBluez on their Omega2+?
might want to see if either of these commands might help you,
pip install –upgrade setuptools
pip install ez_setup
also, setting up a swap file if you do not already have one, is a good practice.
RE: Unofficial 'Omega Arduino Dock 2' schematic diagram
@György-Farkas , i just noticed this thread for first time and will download and refer to it while focused on the arduino dock. thank you for the effort in making the documents and sharing your work. i appreciate that.
RE: Arduino boards.txt edit doesn't work
the message you got might have something to do with needing admin rights to edit. i edited on windows machine and had no issue but perhaps on linux you need to edit while root. i do not know it just when you mention "no access" to a file that can mean opening editor via "sudo" maybe?
RE: Omega 2 and Arduino dock.
as far as testing the dock you might try to flash an empty sketch, as in the sketch that exists when you first open new sketch. compile that and flash it. i've read it is a good way to reset an arduino. it is recommended if you want to get rid [erase] of an existing sketch. after that do the blink example. then run the empty. then run example that you think will test the processes you are interested in. if the example sketches run i'd think the board is good. what you described above is how my board initially acted. if you find as you go along in your testing that the board is acting alright, using the given examples my conclusion is there was something wrong with the sketch or the way you set it up. i guess there is a possibility that some of the things you did like flash the wrong version of sketch might have damaged it. so , it's your call by trying to pass it off as a messed up board on delivery. one other idea is try flashing the proper bootloader. perhaps something in the bootloader you have now is damaged for one reason or another.
RE: Omega 2 and Arduino dock.
Thank you for your reply. Yes I'm positive, but the problem is not with the IDE. I tried to copy the hex file to the Omega2+ and load it using the terminal and am getting the same error. Also, if i read 0x08 from the ATmega I get 0xFF. I did not successfully load any bootloaders but tried to. I tried with the I2C and ICSP methods using the Expansion Dock 2, which both failed because the device (ATmega) could not be detected. I later read that loading the bootloader is actually not needed for the Arduino Dock 2. Starting to wonder if this one is defective maybe?
yes. but, you have to set up the ide properly in order to have clean sketches and a proper setup of the hardware. you could be getting that error because you failed to do the proper setup steps which include using the ide. if your sketch is wrong because of bad setup , the flash will not finish successfully. hence errors.
