Can you create a forum category for HiFive Unleashed. Now that some of us have our boards, there will likely be lots of questions.
Like, why doesn’t the USB connector FTDI serial port have console and boot loader output? I used the same commands as on HiFive1 (screen /dev/ttyUSB# 115200) but get no output.
And you might also get feedback like:
Please change the FTDI chip on the board to be powered from the USB port and not the 12V switched power input. That way the USB device is available even when the system is powered off. Otherwise, I can’t start screen until I’ve turned on the board and I’m likely to miss the first boot loader messages.
Also, you have the fan powered from an unswitched rail? So it’s not obvious when looking at the board and seeing the fan running that the system is in fact not powered on. Now that I know to look for LED’s, it’s more obvious, but first impressions…
