Why is SPI so broken? I know pulling some pins high will stop the Omega from booting but is it more than that ?
Thanks for the link I'll check it out.
I have been given one of these Waveshare 4.2 Inch e-paper module and wonder if anyone has had any experience at trying to get them to work with an Omega?
It supports a variety of platforms like RPi Arduno and STM32 and uses a SPI interface.
Python and C libs are available for the Pi and are GPL2
Any thoughts ?
Well the main issue I have with onion builds is the keep slipping behind the LEDE tree and so you end up with mismatched kernels constantly meaning rolling in driver changes is next to impossible unless you are building the firmware yourself, which brings up back to the point about reproducible builds because if we cannot build what onion builds then how can we update it to make custom builds?
In some respects I really wish Onion would just decide to track LEDE completely and upstream any custom changes that need to be made for a particular devices. As it stands now though I am terrified to do any sort of update on my omegas because there is a high probability it will break something. Even just being able to upgrade the kernel as a package would go a long way to making building for a target easier.
So tried this on both Onion2s I have. I thought maybe I had accidentally set one up myself at some point and forgotten but no, a brand new one out of the box has encryption turned on. I don't recall this being the same for the Omega 1 or for the Omega 2+. Am I missing something ?

Meh... you're right.. Missed that. Still no overly impressed to be honest but at least it is omega connected.
Well looks like another 2 bogus project been backed by Onion. A luxury 'Smartwatch' Which is in fact neither smart not luxury and a 'Smart Alram Clock' Which basically looks like an android phone in a non-phone case.
Really gotta wonder what the hell is going on and I am liable to stop following Onion in the future, despite how much I love the Omega. They are really starting to nark me off with their seemingly randomly backed projects.
Actually the router was the only one that piqued my interest but I still think it is a very niche project. It is not like you will be routing out PCB's or drilling them any time soon with that device, so not really very interested.
The love box is just plain silly. It is a kitsch to say the least and seems like a AWFULLY big box for something the omega could do even without customisation.
The Robot arm, frack me how anyone can think that is practical let alone useful. Are you really going to try and print on a non-flat non-heated non-enclosed surface and not get crappy prints?
The LED light kit? Really? How does that make anything easier? I guess again it is for a very niche market.
The wooden animals, Meh, cute but kinda retro but not in a good way. And this need to tout about FCS certification bugs me. FSC have had issues and I am not really sure they are legit anymore.
But that one that >really< grinds my gears is the Luna Scale. I have not seen such corporate flim flam for a long time. The go through an entire 5 min video complete with cheesy execs and fail to actually explain how their scale works and what makes it so much better than any other bluetooth scale. FFS!
I don't want to be that guy but by Onion backing such trash really is starting to change my perspective of the whole organisation.
Looks like your connection to Onion Community was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
