@kgschlosser Not sure where they are made to be honest, they tend to warp just a tad which breaks the seal. Te hot Aussie sun can be punishing.
That looks like a fun project, I couldn't see where the rocket launcher is going to be located
thanks for replying.
I have connected the Tau Lidar camera to my computer and it does work if it isn't connected to the Omega2+. I'll try to see if it works with a powered USB hub. I'll also wait on Lazar-Demin's response. Thanks in advance.
Hi @Prashant-Kamdar your device is not bricked, it's just confused.
When your device boots it tells you what it is "Board: Onion Omega2"
The firmware you installed was named "omega2p-v0.3.3-b251.bin" which means it is for an Omega2+. So when it's booting it is expecting to find double the flash and double the RAM (https://onion.io/omega2/)
You can fix this by doing a factory reset, the procedure for which can be found in the documentation here:
Once you have completed the factory reset then you can update again, but this time download the firmware with the nomenclature "omega2-vxxxxx" or alternatively, you can use oupgrade command detailed here:
Realized I can connect via serial super easy on mac - this is the result:
I entered firstboot -y; sync; reboot and now its AP popping up again. did the wifi setup via ssh this time.
Seems to all work now...
I'll leave this here, maybe someone finds it useful.
Some more info here is that the serial drivers offered for mac are crashing on M1 big sur but are apparently not even needed, the omega shows up as /dev/tty.usbserial-0001
Hello @mehrdad3dgs welcome to Onion community.
The Omega2+ is basically a little computer that runs a minimalist version of linux, so of course, you can connect to your Omega2+ from the internet.
In order to determine how you connect to your Omeg2+ from the internet we need to understand how you are connecting your Omega2+ to your home/office network. Please provide more details on your configuration.
@Nagarjuna-Reddy I'll see if I can duplicate your problem, but I do not understand your reply to @Lazar-Demin. Also what is the battery rating? 3.7v XXmA ?? XX is?
As @Lazar-Demin asked, please follow these steps and report the results.
Switch off Omega-LTE
Disconnect USB power
Switch on Omega-LTE
Does the Omega-LTE boot and function correctly or does it restart when it is booting up?
Assuming this boots and functions OK then we do a second test.
Boot Omega-LTE while connected to battery only, wait until Omega has completed boot and is fully functional
Connect USB power.
Does the Omega-LTE restart?
After having looked at the issue we realized that the issue is in the install file that we used. We mistakenly used the file for an Omega2+ install while using and Omega2 module. The two FW files are exactly the same in terms of byte size, however the content is quite different and results in the module not being able to boot properly.
Here is an image of the log thinking it is an Omega2+ module despite not being one:
