    I am having trouble with my unit.
    I never could get the serial over usb to work with only the 5v power plugged in, it would show up as a device, but the terminal would stall.
    Plugging in the 12v power adapter yielded the desired result, but I was having problems getting it to read the sd card properly.

    Now, when I try to connect to the serial even with the 12v plugged in, I am having issues.

    It connects, but all I get is a >
    If I type anything (or nothing, it doesn’t matter) and hit enter, the console returns:


    Pressing the reset button makes it spit another > out after a moment, but then has the same behavior.

    If anyone has any insight as to what I am doing wrong, or if I perhaps have a malfunctioning unit, your insight would be appreciated.



    Sounds to me (just guessing here) like you hosed u-boot on the SPI NOR chip. You should be able to place u-boot on an sd-card and boot from it. Once in u-boot on the SDcard you should also be able to re-load u-boot on the SPI NOR (assuming this is the issue). I am not sure if they have this process documented yet, but at least writing u-boot to an SDcard should allow you to boot into an operating system.

    Hope this helps!




    Thanks, I will try that.



    Where might I get the uboot image for this board? I cant seem to find it on the wiki anywhere…
