White model #1637287


The Serial port on the White literati model #1637287 is located on the right side of the device seen in the picture on the right.

there are 4 pins top->down 5v?,TX,RX,GND. connecting these pins to a max232 level converter and then to a serial port on a computer allows you to view the bootloader start up processes and the starting of the linux kernel.


during the boot process there is a 3 second count down to allow a user to enter the bootloader before booting the kernel.
