LeapFrog NXP3200 Platform: dev mode
Enabling the built in "Developer" Mode
- This is only tested on Leappad 2, but probably works on any NXP3200 leapfrog devices.
If you cat rcS you can see previsions for a developer mode that enables usb networking and starts ftp and telnet servers.
To Enable dev mode you will need console access, either with a ttl serial adapter or it may be possible via OpenLFConnect.
Once you have console access,type:
# cd /flags
# mkdir developer
After a reboot the device will now enable usb networking and the ftp and telnet servers.
On the host pc I had to set the usb networking device to a static ip in the 192.168.0.x range
The ip of the leappad2 is fixed to 192.168.0.111
With the ftp server this gives the ability to browse the whole device, including Game cart contents.
