1  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / Hardware / Re: Is my sheevaplug dead ??? on: March 06, 2010, 07:13:26 AM
I had the same problem with my plug: dead power supply. When I opened it up it looked exactly like the pictures posted by others earlier.

I took out the old, dead sheeva power supply and added a supply from a usb hub I had lying around. Now everything is back and working with no obvious problems yet.

Any chance of some more help with this? I cannot connect to the serial port from my mac and I don't know why. I have installed the drivers mentioned above and think Ive patched the info.plist file. When I run ls -al /dev/ I never se the plug.

It seems like other people are managing to access the plug so I'm sure it something I'm not doing quite right. Help……

EDIT:

Seems like I have it now. it was a problem patching the info.plist and now I have access on
Code:
screen /dev/tty.usbserial-FTS8WJ4CA 115200

Any chance of someone writing this up for the wiki and adding more detail, especially about patching the info.plist? I've never used patch and don't know how add whatever is necessary make the serial connection work.
