U-Boot interaction with LCD7 cape in place...


if the Beaglebone Black is put on a LCD7 cape, the serial
pins are no longer reachable be a standard FTDI cable due
to space limitations.

I tried to redirect the boot output to tty1, but most
of the early boot process is far out of screen before
the LCD7 come to life.

What other options do I have to stop the boot process so
that I am able to interact with Das U-Boot directly?

Thank you very much in advance for any help!

Best regards,

You can bend the serial connector over if you like. Or you could just buy a right angle adapter as indicated on the Accessories page.
