I want to flash my netduino mini to use .NET MF 4.2, I'm currently using serial/FTDI cable but these instruction say that boot loader requires rs232?
I'm starting to get a bit frustrated because it's seems instructions and documentation is scattered and lacking. Maybe this stuff is easy for you electrical engineers, but I'm a software engineer, with a good understanding of electronics (my dad's a biomed engineer), but I'm still getting lost.
Why isn't there a simple schematic showing the basic of power and the two different communications setups (rs232/FTDI)?
I plan to provide a revised getting started document once I work everything out. I will need it anyway for a friend who is going to work with me on this project and he's greener than me (He's 15).
Thanks for any help,
