I have a 3V3 FTDI cable with me.
FTDI RX -> BOOST Hub pin 6 (TX)
FTDI TX -> BOOST Hub Pin 5 (RX)
FTDI GND -> BOOST Hub Pin 3 (GND)
Just by connecting it to Port C I get a new device discovered:
0f 00 04 01 01 09 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00
Device Type 09 is a new device. Don’t know what to do with it.
Adding resistors to try to emulate the BOOST Interactive Motor changes nothing.
Tried a few bash scripts to send the power up sequence of the motor… nothing changed. Perhaps bad timings?
Rewired pin 6 to CTS# instead of RX and enabled Handshaking:
stty -F /dev/ttyUSB3 crtscts 115200
Tried again without timings. Nothing changed.
So the only good new is that BOOST detects a UART device as a device of type ’09’ so future hacking will be possible… as soon as we understand it.
