    If your not using UART5 (or the pins) on the M4 side then you can reallocate it to the A9 side, however I'm not sure if this is possible through the device tree editor. If not then you need to 'hack' the dts files, recompile and deploy.

    Alternatively you can plugin a usb to serial adapter (eg like a CP1202) to gain another serial port.

    @DezertRozez I would be very interested to hear if you did it reallocating UART5.
