Hmm, does it ? As far as I know, it should work fine from battery.
Of course, then you either need to worry about battery life or
connect some other supply to the battery terminals, which may or

Yes, GTA01 has these GPIOs too. The registers that control them are
even at the same address in the 2410 and the 2442, so the "gpio"
program works on both.
