    Hi,

    Is there any chance how to access the uboot and get the boot message printed on a hdmi monitor instead of connecting the serial monitor to get the debug info?

    Thx

    No sorry, you always need the serial monitor to get the info. ;)

    Delba's right of course. You're stuck with the serial monitor output at the moment.

    It is a uboot limitation.

    However there is hope for the future. Others (such as Boundary Devices) have HDMI & LVDS output supported uboot versions, and I believe Team UDOO is working on a uboot 2013 update (or at least it's on the todo list). If it's a later version (such a 2013.09 or later) then it's certainly possible if they can find the man hours to complete/test.
