Hi Ben,

I'm interested in how you got the board to boot and be accessible from outside without a screen.
Some time ago my GTA02 was dunked in water and that broke its screen. After reflashing SHR, I wasn't able to access it in any way because the screen was required to finish setup.
What distribution did you use?


P.S. If anyone's interested in the device, feel free to contact me.
