It is possible to debug AGL images on Raspberry Pi using 3.3V USB to serial cable, such as Olimex USB-Serial-Cable-F, connected to the UART of the board. Follow the instructions below to connect a cable to the board (do it on your own risk, no warranty is provided):

  • Connect the BLUE wire if you are using Olimex USB-Serial-Cable-F to pin 6 of Raspberry Pi,
  • Connect the RX line of the cable (GREEN wire if you are using Olimex USB-Serial-Cable-F) to pin 8 (TX line) of Raspberry Pi,
  • Connect the TX line of the cable (RED wire if you are using Olimex USB-Serial-Cable-F) to pin 10 (RX line) of Raspberry Pi.

Olimex USB-Serial-Cable-F attached to Raspberry PI 2 for debugging through the serial console

  • Plug the USB connector of the cable to your computer and use your favorite tool for serial communication, for example on Ubuntu and other Linux distributions you may use screen:
sudo screen /dev/ttyUSB0 115200

Pay attention that the colors of the cable may vary depending on the vendor. If you have USB console cable from Adafruit please have a look here.
