    Hey,
    Did u require any specific drivers to use this setup?
    This seems t be a better alternative than buying a $50 USB- Serial TTL level convertor. However, I am just worried about how to use this setup without particular drivers. Would the nokia CD that comes with this cord be useful?

    Many Thanks
    Tanmay

    nope.. you just need the default usb-to-serial drivers, which arent exotic….

    Hi there,
    On my CA-42 cable, the connector (nokia end) only has 6 pins (viewable), not 14. Do i have to crack it open to access the others?

    Any help appreciated!

    I did the same, but I didn’t know hiow to use the cable :))) I locked myself outside my router (wrong IP setup) and I didn’t know how to correct this over serial console. A friend told me that simply I have to use the command “firstboot && reboot”, that solved my problems.
    Regarding the garbage data you receive, I think this is common to these cheap modified cables, even the hand touch will generate some data :), seems like some parts are missing from the cable analog side.
