Fantastic! My PE just arrived from woot today and I've been going nuts trying to find out how to get a uboot console without just flashing mtd partitions blind. Somehow I'd assumed I wouldn't be able to get a serial terminal without soldering wires to my shiny new toy (I'm more of a software guy. Soldering is my weak point
). Anyways, I'm happy to be wrong.
To anyone who's already done this: Did you use a USB->serial adapter? Will an actual standard PC serial port work or is there voltage conversion that needs to be done? I might not have a chance to work on this much until the weekend, but I want to be ready to dive into it at that point.
