Cloning the Omega2LTE image and flashing other devices - Not Working
I have been trying to clone the Omega2LTE device after adding custom files and configurations.
I have inserted an SD card into the device I want to clone and run the dd command. However, after cloning it doesn't seem to keep any files, packages or configuration I set in the device.
My firmware is on the device I want to clone and all other devices is the same as below:
Onion-ware 0.3.3 b251
I have been trying to follow this tutorial here: https://community.onion.io/topic/4563/faq-is-it-possible-to-clone-the-firmware-running-on-an-omega2-device-and-copy-it-to-other-omega2-units?_=1695311567253
The command I have been running is:
dd if=/dev/mtd3 of=omega100.bin
Afterward it spits out an image file and I swap the SD card to a different onion. I then run:
mtd -r write omega100.bin firmware
The device restarts and yet none of the files are in the /root and python3 is not installed, etc.
I just want to be able to flash an image to other devices while keeping python3 installed and having the custom files and configurations still set.
@thomas166 hmm that's strange. To confirm, both the "original" and "clone" Omega2 LTE devices are running the same firmware version initially?
Can you post the output of the
dd if=/dev/mtd3 of=omega100.binand
mtd -r write omega100.bin firmwarecommands?
I am not sure why, but it was not working on my computer/SD card. I tried on a different computer with a different SD card and it worked no problem.
@thomas166 glad to hear it worked out.
I'm a little confused tho, when you say computer, do you mean the Omega2 LTE?
