[Q] Accessing FTDI USB Serial on JB
please excuse me if that should have been obvious:
How do I access a FTDI USB Serial Module with a program? I have a 3DR 433 Mhz Radio which essentially is a FTDI UART Converter and should do the telemetry downlink for a copter.
Using EOS 4 (170) on MZ601, everything works fine from the unmodified ROM, the ttyUSB5 comes up cleanly after insmod'ing the module. stty / cat / echo access to ttyUSB5 is absolutely fine. But all of my Apps, be it a USB Device Info, USB Serial Terminal, Serial Tool, Copter Ground Control Station (Droidplanner, Andropilot) just tell me that I do not have a USB Serial device
Just one program lets me manually set it to ttyS4 (where I symlinked ttyUSB5 to).
Obviously these Apps seem to do a serial device checks in a place that does not exist on my Xoom. Could someone maybe shed some light on this and eventually help me to get that working?
Thanks a lot!
