Personal tools

neocon is a handy terminal application (not only) for Bootloader.

neocon has a few graving advantages over some other terminal apps:

  • You don't have to be root to access /dev/ttyACM0 with neocon. Beeing member of dialout should give you sufficient privileges.
  • neocon can be started without /dev/ttyACM0 beeing available. It will automatically connect as soon as you start u-boot on the Neo.
  • due to the delay it puts on keyboard input, neocon will allow you to paste commands directly from clipboard without making u-boot choke on it.

You can download the source at Build neocon by issuing


To connect to the [bootloader|Bootloader] use

./neocon -t 30 /dev/ttyACM0

To getrid of neocon, just issue a

killall neocon
