Hi All,

I would like to know if it is possible to change the ID of a beacon using the FTDI pins on the board, Unfortunately, we have broken the usb connector.

I tried connecting to it via picocom on linux but cant see any data in or out. Are there any special settings or commands which needs to be sent to enable it.

It should be possible but it requires to recompile the firmware. If you enable the USE_FTDI_UART flag the node will use the FTDI serial port instead of the USB uart: ... akefile#L6
