I have some questions about the USB recovery procedure on this page:
1. Does the board have to be powered on through the 5v power connector for this procedure?
2. What cables do I need to connect for USB recovery to work?
--do I need to have a USB "OTG" cable connected for this procedure?
--do I need to have a USB A-to-A cable connected?
--both these things?
You need only a USB OTG, USB A to A not neccessary for recovery procedure. For 5v power, I tried only with OTG cable, that feeds the board over USB connector, this works but sometimes this brings out some errors and cutoffs so I think you should use a 5v power source. and you can follow this link for USB recovery http://nishanthmenon.blogspot.com/2009/01/beagleboard-recovery-take-2.html This is a good guide for this. Good luck
