    Thanks for the update BadIntentions. Sorry to hear about mother nature bad temper.

    Default how to communicate over serial to valkyrie nas

    @BadIntentions

    i have just ordered a CA-42 USB Data Cable For Nokia as per your instructions on the serial thread you posted a while ago i was wondering if you get the time if you could give a few more details on how to actually use the CA-42 usb cable to talk to the serial port on the valkyrie. the main info i would like to know is what wires on the adapter go to witch pads on the valkyrie and the commands and software you would use to access the serial port from a windows pc or ubuntu if that is better for you. thank you very much for your help and time and i look forward to watching your open source firmware grow into a great alliterative to the stock one provided by patriet

    There are a few variations of the CA-42 cable. Its just a TTL/RS232 converter, but some require 3.3V to work. Kinda sucks. The wires are different for every type of CA-42. You will have to test/probe to find out. If there are only three wires, its hard to get into trouble. If there are 4, then you will need to spend a fair amount of time finding which one is +3.3V. I cheated and used a pinout diagram of the pop port connector. FBUS TX and RX are your rx/tx pins. http://pinouts.ru/CellularPhones-Nok...p_pinout.shtml

    But they have, on occasion, bribed me with hardware.



    I am happy to help, but don't PM me. Post a thread in the appropriate forum so others may benefit and offer assistance.

    You can do better than admin. You can do root.

    i am getting impatient on waiting for my ca-42 cable and thinking of trying to use my Arduino microcontroller to interface with the serial port on the valkyrie nas i donít know how this will go but i will post if i have any success

    i have made my self a little adapter to access the serial port on the valkyrie nas using my arduino but to be honest i am not that into the electronic side of things so it would be a real help if you or someone else could point out the spots i need to attach to 3.3v and a good ground i got the tx and the rx from your diagram and i got my self a handy guide to use my arduino as a serial adapter. i plan on using putty to communicate over the serial adapter. if you think this is not a good program to use or you have any other recommendations i would appreciate your advice thanks again for any and all help.

    you do not need to attach 3.3v if the arduino adapter doesnt need it to run. the pictures i quoted above show little red arrows on where to attach the RX and TX. For ground, you can use any common ground area on the board. I have connected to the USB port's shell (outside metal housing) in a pinch, which shouldnt cause any issues for your use.

    The bitrate of the valkyrie is 11500 with 8 bits and no parity
