BeagleBone-conformity rules?


I recently bougt a Beaglebone Green which was stated to be fully Beaglebone-compliant and compatible. Amazingly I found there was no serial number stored in EEPROM of this BBG.

So my question: is a valid an unique serial number (no longer) part of the specification that makes a board BeagleBone-compatible/-verified?


If you hexdump the eeprom you should see a serial number… They wanted to be 100% compatible with old images and I wanted a way to detect that it was ‘different’…


OK, in my BBG’s EEPROM If find at the address where the BBB serial number is stored a 0x04 followed by a bunch of 0x00 - nothing that is similar to your example.
