I've recenly bought a Simpad SL4.
I want to switch the originally installed CE 3.0 for Opie or Gpe.
After some reading in this forum and opensimpad.org, I
So far I've managed to:
1. solder a simple serial cable (gnd, rx, tx).
2. serloaded bl_loader.alt, reset
3. serloaded bl_loader, reset
Everything went as expected so far.
BL was upgraded from 2.4.20 to 2.5.3, so far so good.
Next step should be to boot and access BL monitor menu to erase flash, right?
Here comes the problem.
I can't get the simpad to react pressing the ESC key. It just boots as
normal whatever I do.
Terminal settings are 38400 8N1.
I've tried it on 2 computers, with HT and MiniCom, no luck.
Is IS possible to do this even with a "simple" serial cable, right????
Or am I missing something?
Sorry for my not so good english, hope you understand.
