Nokia 5110 and Beaglebone using bonescript

I spent a few days working with the Beaglebone bonescript and getting
the Nokia 5110 LCD display working. Thought I'd share the work with
you all...

Demo/test program running on the display: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vcRum9zekuc

Code: https://github.com/kkeller/Nokia5110

Let me know if you have problems or questions...

Hey!

is there any way this is working on the current BBB?
i fixed a few errors (bone/bb mismatch) but still, there’s no output, though wiring should be correct.

A bit more information is required. Also, are you pulling CS low long enough for the Nokia 5110 to initialize initially ? Can you give us a step by step of what you’ve done so far( without me having to watch a video ) ? I have worked with these LCD’s some myself, but it is hard to say what you’re doing wrong, without knowing all the details of what you’ve done.

I've pushed my code for it to http://github.com/jadonk/Nokia5110 as a
fork to Ken's code. I've been testing with BoneScript 0.2.4 as it has
a bug fix in shiftOut. I'm also fixing a few performance issues as I
go along. At my local hackerspace (i3 Detroit) we are looking to do a
bit of a hands-on tutorial with this display to create a cheap
always-on Internet+sensors status display.
