    Awesome, dude. I’ve almost needed UART before when porting kernels to new devices, but never knew we could get the hardware here (leave alone how to use it).

    btw, if you wrap your longer code blocks in a pre and a code (in that order), they’ll be set aside as blocks. The code block alone is better suited for inline monospace stuff. 🙂

    Hi, very good work.It make your appreciate the power of open source especially the linux kernel.I’m eagerly waiting for the embedded board firmware, uhondoo uko hapo!!.

    Also have tried it with the actel smartfusion SoC. I managed to get linux in it, which will make everything much simpler. Also consider the kinetics(freescale) board.

    Hi, It is posible to do the same on others andriods terminals like the Nexus 7? I mean, use usb host mode on andriod with pyserial.

    I am using SL4A,but I can not install pyserial on the tablet. The regular pyserial is not suitable for the linux under android. How do you install the pyserial?

    Great post. Thanks!

    I’m trying to do the same for the nexus 4. All the drivers that you packaged into .ko files were just linux drivers, right?
