@cas several years ago a google engineer released some review on usb-c type plugs/cables that revealed just how many of them were faulty, seemed incorrect/bad resistors being most common. google engineer Benson Leung published a list of ok cables/adapters on his google+ page which ceased to exist recently and someone else created this posting of his findings, https://bensonapprovedcom.wordpress.com/
google sells some models on their store but they are pricey. at least much more than in 2016. i bought off that list on amazon and spent ~$12US for a kit that had a usb-c male to usb-a male cable [for attach a android phone to win 10 box] plus a usb-a female to usb-a female to create the needed usb-a female host port for OTG. ebay has some also, usually cheaper.
I may be the only one who wants this, but if anyone else would like to use/modify this script, feel free. I added the ability to 'cancel' the SafePower mode by just running the script again.
Its possible this turns out to be a bad idea, but it cannot be worse than just pulling the power. I have not tried it, but I imagine running in SafePower mode would also not present much problems as ultimately there just is not a lot of flash writing going on (at least in my case).
Glad to see everyone is as excited about the Omega2 Pro as we are! :D
A few clarifying points:
The Omega2 Pro is an addition to the Onion family. We will not be discontinuing Omega2 and Omega2+ for the foreseeable future.
The firmware is an Onion-flavored OpenWRT 18.06. We will still continue to create firmware for the Omega2 family, and the OpenWRT 18.06 version will make its way to the Omega2 and Omega2+ in the short term.
