Linux Almost Booting! Augen

by on Oct.30, 2010, under Augen

I am getting closer to booting Linux on my Augen E go :)
Pin out of the undocumented uart port

To enable uart boot mode tie the uart boot pin to ground. you system will seem like it is dead when you hit the power button, the key lights should turn on though. Keep holding the power button while you send your favorite arm boot loader to the system over the uart at 19200 baud.
if all is done right you can attempt to load a zImage :) I used the one for the Didj

go 1800000
## Starting application at 0x01800000 …
