Darren Kitchen Posted March 22, 2009 Share Posted March 22, 2009 This seems to be a reoccurring topic so I'll go ahead and post links to the resources you'll need to check out. The basic idea is that you can access redboot or a bash console from the serial port on the fon. The important bits to note here are that a RS-232 to TTL level converter is necessary. You can't simply plug a USB or serial cable into the fon -- the voltage difference will make for a pissed off pineapple. This adapter can come in board or cable form and can be easily hacked out of cell phone usb cables, build with simple electronics on a bread board, or purchased for under $10. The other important thing note here is that the Fon won't boot if the serial cable is plugged in. Just power on and plug the cable in a second or two later.
