Con401


Pin 1 = GND
Pin 3 = RxD
Pin 6 = TxD



take a file and make a little hole at the place to put the cable through.
mark the Ground Cable, at the picture it is marked with pink colour


After that connect Gnd with Gnd

RxD with RxD  and TxD with Txd
If u don't get the connections cross the RxD and TxD Cables.

open up a connection with HyperTerminal in windows or minicom
use Baudrate 115200 8N1 (8N1 == 8-bits per character, no parity, and 1 stop bit)


CTRL+C  == ^C is the command to stop the RedBoot Bootload Script. 





Airflow Mod for Sinking the Temperature




There is enough space to put air out from the fsg-3 fan.
But there are no holes to put fresh air into the fsg.

so i drilled 6 holes in the front
