I bought a new device supposedly a "new" one, as in updated. I have no idea how to know if it's a gen1 or gen2 device as its not explained anywhere. Please add a photo guide or preferably a mapping from the commercial name to the GenX name. This is my device:

I'm asking since I can't find a /mnt/default/roborock.conf file on my device. This is my device's /mnt/default directory:

$ ls -al /mnt/default
total 40

drwxr-xr-x 6 root root  1024 Jul  1 15:19 ..

As far as I can tell, that's a Gen2

When I did some research on the Roborock recently, I found the following distinct features:

Gen1: Xiaomi Mi Robot Vacuum Cleaner

LIDAR offset to the edge, two buttons; Home and Power.

Gen2: Roborock S5 Series

LIDAR much closer to the center, three buttons; Home, Power and Spot

Gen3: Roborock S6 Series

LIDAR close to the center (like the S5), the three buttons are still present, but are now merged together;

There might be something of interest for you here:
