Omega Onion is resetting itself
I have noticed if the Omega Onion stay tuned on a lot of time (some days, for example), it reset itself and lost files and wi-fi configurations.
When this "reset" happens, the firmware continues updated, so I don't know what happens, maybe an "auto upgrade"?
My firmware is updated (0.1.1). But I noticed this issue in old versions.

How does your setup look like?
Do you use a mini-dock or the normal one?
- Mini-docks need more airflow to cool down because there are more electronics on a smaller space.
Could it be, that this restarts came from a power cut?
As i do live in Brazil I know that this happens quite often.
Or it could be a bad board check out the link for returning defective Omega.
It's a normal dock (expansion dock). I have noticed that occurred with power cut but also without power cut (I know looking the microwave clock).
This problem is non-recurring, so I think it can be a software problem. Power cuts happens, the software can be able to restart without any lost.

Have you tried a factory reset?
A few months ago yes, but after "factory reset" the firmware still the same, like here: http://community.onion.io/topic/358/factory-reset-not-working/3
Is the problem still occurring?
From what I understand, the Omega automatically performs a factory restore every once in a while?
A factory restore can be triggered by holding the reset button down for 10 seconds or more, is it possible that this is somehow happening?
Or maybe the Omega is resting on a conductive surface and the RST pin gets held at high voltage for 10 seconds and the factory restore is triggered?
@Lazar-Demin the last time it occurred was 10 days ago, maybe when power cut.
It's not possible the reset button down for 10 seconds, because there is no one in home and the dock is on the table with nothing on the side. Below the dock is not conductive surface.
It's not happening a "factory restore" because the firmware, after this issue, still updated, just the "not core files" are removed. Packages installed by opkg also are removed.
@Gustavo-de-Arruda-Paes A factory restore will keep you on the same firmware version, it will just delete all of the changes you've made to the base image. So as if you got it from the factory with that firmware, if that makes sense.
Do let us know if it happens again.
@Lazar-Demin ah, ok. I thought that factory reset move my firmware to older version too.
I will post here if happening again.
@Lazar-Demin happened again, another power cut and the onion was factory restored.
To work around, I created an shell script which install and configure my system and I call it on "/etc/rc.local". This file still intact because I put he on "/etc/systemupgrade.conf".
