Description

We need to add support for the Neo1973 under Windows and OS X

Change History

This basically means two things

1) bootloader access (CDC ACM)

this should generally work, but might need some changes in the CDC ACM
descriptor in our u-boot version.

2) ethernet access to the linux kernel (CDC Ethernet / RNDIS)

This is generally well supported and lots of other Linxu handhenlds use it.

Somebody might consider looking into

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to fixed

I'm going through cleaning out older bugs that we don't really intend to target, as the amount of open bugs has gotten crazy and we can't see the wood from the trees. Please accept my apologies.

We have successful support in Windows and Linux using RNDIS on Ethernet over USB.

Bootloader access is a bit specialized and we can point people to a debug board if they don't have a Linux box, the debug board works with more standard USB serial widely available FTDI windows driver.

I realize closing this as fixed is arguable, but afaik bootloader serial access in windows has no visible priority for getting addressed further, particularly as we plan to migrate off U-Boot altogether in the next device.
