TonidoPlug2 console access?

Postby Materdaddy » Thu Oct 20, 2011 2:37 pm

My TonidoPlug2 just arrived and I noticed there is a little 4-pin header under a rubber cover opposite the hard drive. Is this TTL level console access that we can use by simply throwing on an FTDI adapter? If so, what is the pin-out? It looks as though there is a 5 connector section on the PCB, although there are only 4 which have accessible pins.

Can we access uBoot from the console?

Yes, potentially you can. You need a serial adapter for that.
If we see enough demand, we will be selling it in our stores.

Thanks for the fast reply.

I have TTL to RS232 adapters. What is the pin-out, and baud rate?

Got it working. Pin-out is as follows:

"Top" of TonidoPlug2
VCC
RX
TX
GND
NC (This is the unpopulated pin)
"Bottom" of TonidoPlug2

"top" is where the power connection is, "bottom" is where the USB and Ethernet ports are.

Would this adapter work (after connecting the proper pins of course)

If so, I might be able to unbrick :)
