The new Console release is here!
We're super proud to present the Ando N1 release of the Console! Upgrade to the latest firmware to get it on your Omega!
You can use the Firmware Upgrade tool in the Settings App in the existing console, or you can run
oupgradeon the terminal.
If you find any bugs, please report them on our GitHub Console Issues page
Oh and by the way, there was a method behind our madness (as always) when we picked the codename. The first three users to correctly guess our reasoning will get a little prize from us here at Onion. Message myself or @Boken-Lin with your guesses!
Cool Like the upgrade.
- Like that it now works with Firefox
- Like that the settings bugs have been fixed
- Like the GPIO Tool
Keep up the good work

Thanks for the great new update! I see improvements to UI and stuff working better.

Can't seem to select values for "VALUE" in GPIO Tool for any pin nor does the "Sync" button work
@Theodore-Borromeo Yeah the interface is a little buggy, we're working on fixing the issues now.
In the meantime, I've found that once you change a pin from Input to Output, you have to select another pin and then go back to the pin whose direction you've changed to be able to set the value and run the Sync button.

Great you rolled out out and yeah like the GPIO tool looks slick..And really cool you are on a new kernel however introduced another repo-mismatch.
opkg upgrade tinc Installing tinc (1.0.26-1) to root... Downloading http://downloads.openwrt.org/chaos_calmer/15.05/ar71xx/generic/packages/packages/tinc_1.0.26-1_ar71xx.ipk. Collected errors: * satisfy_dependencies_for: Cannot satisfy the following dependencies for tinc: * kernel (= 3.18.20-1-7bed08fa9c06eb8089e82c200340ec66) * root@Omega-1956:~# uname -a Linux Omega-1956 3.18.23 #1 Tue Nov 10 20:51:50 UTC 2015 mips GNU/Linux
So seems like another repo was used in building. Please let us know which so are can install kernel mods like tun etc.
@T-NT We are in the process of setting up our own repository server, which will have only packages with compatible kernel version numbers. Hopefully this will resolve the kernel mismatch problem.

Yeah I figured as much.. but until then can only play around with the Omega and not do any real work with it Still a good update though and very happy to see such active development. Kudos guys. Doing a great job!
Great work, thank you!!
Great work! I'm happy to see that this product isn't forgotten after being shipped, but actively worked on.
Yes, it was a very good idea to back this up. Thumbs up for everybody working on this!
So far there has only been one correct guess for the inspiration behind the Ando codename!
Keep those guesses coming for another week and then we'll give out the prizes
When I first got my Omega, I ran the Setup Wizard (Chrome, Mac). I updated the firmware to get the Console, but found that I still got the Setup Wizard at http://Omega-ABCD.local. It took me a bit to realize I was looking at a cached version in my browser. I performed a force refresh (hold down Control and click refresh) and the Console came up. This might be worth mentioning in the firmware update docs.

@Mark-Larson Totally agree. This is an easily avoided pothole that should be in the docs. You can switch browsers, that's what I did.
@Mark-Larson ok, we'll make sure to add that to the docs!
Also, we've just gotten our second correct codename guess! Only one more prize left!
We've fixed the issues with the GPIO app, upgrade to the latest firmware to grab the fixes!
@Lazar-Demin Ok, so now the initial setting works. But try to transition the pin back to 'input' after setting it to 'output' + 'a value'. Will the old hack still work in that case? I tried this on GPIO1.
@Lazar-Demin yeah, old hack doesn't seem to work
@Theodore-Borromeo it should work with no hacks required now! going from 'output' -> 'input' should just require changing the Direction in the drop-down menu and a press of the Sync button.
Let me know how it goes.
@Lazar-Demin I haven't tested it, but quick question:
Does setting a pin as input and as a 1 cause a pull-up circuit? If not, then perhaps the software should just disallow level setting when the pin is an input
@Theodore-Borromeo the Value drop-down menu isn't clickable when the Direction is set to Input. Clicking Sync will take a reading of the pin's current value and then display it.
