Any word on an install for Pogoplug Mobile? I went through the install process with the series 4 and it's of course telling me this is an unsupported device.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
ABORTING!!! UNSUPPORTED MODEL
===================================
This installer is ONLY for Series 4
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks for all the hard work. i'm looking forward to getting this up and running!

Can you get us just CEBOARDVER from your uboot parameters? `/usr/local/cloudengines/bin/blparam`

Adjusted to include the PPV4A1 .. it was only looking for PPV4A3 :) We don't own a mobile, so we were not sure of it's boardver.

Just downloaded the update for ppv4-install.sh and installed. She works! Did the reboot then had to power the mobile off then on. I am logged into it right now from my iPad.

I've seen a reference to the serial pins on J11, but not a detailed pinout yet.

Has anyone done the analysis of the serial pin assignment?

I have a multimeter. Is that enough to identify the ground, tx and rx lines? What should I see when probing the pin pairs to identify those lines?

From top to bottom (where top is nearest to the sdcard tray* and bottom is nearest the side with the connectors):

  • - ground
  • - rx
  • - tx
  • - 3.3v

This is for the PPv4 - I don't know if the Mobile has the same pinout, but I would be surprised if theres a difference...

Make sure to use a level shifter to TTL 3.3v and connect gnd with gnd, 3.3v with 3.3v, rx with tx, tx with rx.

* the mobile does not have SDcard... So: look from top onto the PP and have the connectors for USB, network, power facing south ;)

I just received a Pogoplug Mobile and based on the previous messages in this thread, it looks like it is supported by Arch Linux ARM using the Pogoplug Series 4 install instructions. Is this correct? I am also hoping to add a header to the board to allow for a serial connection (I already have a converted Nokia CA-42 USB cable that I use to connect to Dockstars and PogoplugV2s) and was wondering if anyone has already done so and has any tips. Do the locations where the J11 pins attach to the board go all the way through and they are just holes that are filled with solder?

Thanks.

Here is a image of the Pogoplug Mobile board. It looks similar to the series 4 board, but not too surprising is missing some of the components.
