Problem after move to new firmware

  • Hi,
    After upgrading my firmware I have a problem trying to Boot from External Storage, So I made and Factory Reset. and after that:
    The look of my terminal change, see the picture
    Every time that I connect to the omega, the setup wizard appears
    If a press the Reset button at the dock for 10 seconds nothing happens.

    How can I resolve these issues?.
    I just want start from Zero with my omega2
    thanks for your time

    @andres-mac boot your omega with the external storage removed, then run firstboot -y; sync; reboot and you'll get back to factory settings.
    Allow the Omega to completely boot (might take 3-4min after the firstboot procedure), and then try to setup booting from external storage again.

    Let us know how it goes

  • Hi Lazar,
    Thank you for your technical support,
    before read your answer, I tried this command:
    umount /overlay && jffs2reset && reboot
    and now my terminal looks like this

    with a tmpfs file mounted on /tmp/root
    and the overlay is using the 86% ( is this normal after a factory setting reset?)

    then a try with your command and this was the result
    And the overlay persistent at 86%.

    I think that my omega2 is going better,

    But Every time that I connect to the omega, the setup wizard appears can you help me with that and with the tmpfs file mounted on /tmp/root, and the 86% of overlay, I just want have my omega2 like new (with all erased as factory)

    Thank you so much for your help, and excuse my English

    @andres-mac that's definitely strange, the df command should yield something like this:

    root@Omega-F195:/# df -h
    Filesystem                Size      Used Available Use% Mounted on
    /dev/root                 6.3M      6.3M         0 100% /rom
    tmpfs                    61.4M    232.0K     61.1M   0% /tmp
    /dev/mtdblock6           24.4M    868.0K     23.5M   3% /overlay
    overlayfs:/overlay       24.4M    868.0K     23.5M   3% /
    tmpfs                   512.0K         0    512.0K   0% /dev

    I think your best bet would be to try reinstalling the firmware using the bootloader. You have two options:

    1. Flashing new firmware using web recovery
    2. Flashing new firmware using USB storage

    Let me know how it goes!

  • Hi Lazar
    Thank you so much for your help, I reinstalled the firmware using a USB storage and I think my Omega2 is alive again, now my terminal and the df command looks like this.
    Before making a mess again, I would like to know if the steps to Booting from External Storage (micro SD card) are the same as shown at
    Or are different for the new firmware?

    Thanks for your time.
