Re: How to get output fromm bootloader

Dear Jonas,

thanks from your answer
but I was asking for something different:

I already used Linux boot & kernel log from serial 2 on dev board. But on
our board I'm not able to get anything from LInux kernel. The problem is

I know there is to possibility to get the log of the "network download to
flash and boot" process, but this log cannot use Linux, as Linux is not
running at this stage.

Or probably I made a misunderstatement...

Can you tell me if this log can be obtained from the board, o not?
