Mini-USB to the PC
USB keyboard and mouse
Ethernet, on a network that supports DHCP
HDMI-to-DVI-D on the P1 DVI-D connector
# Initial setup, part 1: build fastboot
# Initial setup, part 2:
# With no SD card inserted, plug USB first, then the power cord,
# and load fastboot over USB:
# Initial setup, part 3:
# Once in fastboot, insert and initialize an SD card (4GB or greater):
fastboot oem format
fastboot flash xloader device/ti/panda/xloader.bin
fastboot flash bootloader device/ti/panda/bootloader.bin
# Build and flash, part 1: Do a build
# Build and flash, part 2: Flash
# Reboot into the SD card's fastboot (hold GPIO_121 and press PWRON_RESET)
# and flash the system:
fastboot erase cache
fastboot flash userdata
# Post-boot setup, part 1: Set the date on the board:
adb shell date $(date +%s)
# Post-boot setup, part 2: Configure Ethernet
adb shell dhcpcd eth0
