HOW TO - Connect the serial console
I've bought a ch340 uart converter from pine shop, it looks exactly like the one on the picture. But when I put the yellow jumper on 3v3, i get nothing in dmesg, only when I put the jumper on 5V I get USB device recognized in dmesg and the ttyUSB port is there, but then,, of course, I don't get anything on it since it is on 5V

This is on 5V
# dmesg | tail -f
[98293.116166] usb 3-1: new full-speed USB device number 3 using uhci_hcd
[98293.304184] usb 3-1: New USB device found, idVendor=1a86, idProduct=7523, bcdDevice= 2.54
[98293.304187] usb 3-1: New USB device strings: Mfr=0, Product=2, SerialNumber=0
[98293.304190] usb 3-1: Product: USB2.0-Serial
[98293.307329] ch341 3-1:1.0: ch341-uart converter detected
[98293.314267] usb 3-1: ch341-uart converter now attached to ttyUSB0

this is on 3V3
nothing, nada, zilch Wink

any ideas? is my ch341 dead? My PC too old?
Hi all,

Three weeks ago, the RockPro64 kit and serial connector arrived. I tried to run the Debian installer, I could see the console output and failed to enter anything.

I connected the PIN 10 when the installer menu was shown, but the console simply did NOT accept any input.

Any idea what went wrong ?

Thank you,
