I just downloaded the Omega2 Project Book that was part of my Kickstarter order. From a quick overlook ... Wow! Lots of content! Hard work! Very beautifully made! Thanks a lot to the Onion Team!

RE: New Omega2+ seems to be "dead"
I have the two little holes in the golden metal strips too, but no solder as you do. Btw, your photos are really sharp for the size! Nicely done!
There's a component soldered sideways near the SD card connector edge, the edge opposite to the card entrance. Not sure if it's connected or not because it's darker there.
RE: Omega2 + no wifi seen on PC anymore
Use the first Serial Port to help debug.
RE: Expansion Dock LEDs seem not to work. (O2+)
This is not a problem. This is by design to protect the GPIOs. The docs provide LED use examples here:
PS: I'll admit that the
expledcommand should be more intelligent, and ask the user to switch the GPIO LED pins to OUTPUT if it notices they are in INPUT mode (and the WARNING about switching to OUTPUT mode too, especially for cases where the Expansion Dock is not used).
RE: Newbie: Added files Vanish; Pkg installs vanish
Well, now split in two threads... a merge would be nice.
RE: Losing Data after power off
Another possible cause I can think of is you tried to install the packages before your omega2 has fully initialized. Try making sure the orange led stopped flashing after boot.
Perhaps that the return to the COMMAND LINE should be delayed to prevent the problem from occurring.
RE: Fresh Omega2 doesn't want to start
