I like to say that It works with my EBD :) !

Thank you for your irreplaceable help :) !

BTW: do you know how to find producer of the flash? Looking at the board is the only way?

On my EDmini v2 it is a Macronix (aka MXIC) MX29LV400CBTC-70G.
The data sheet is here : http://www.macronix.com/QuickPlace/hq/PageLibrary4825740B00298A3B.nsf/h_Index/7CE3021F57B8EA4848257412002E26CC/$File/MX29LV400C-800C-160CT-B-2.2.pdf

Great!

So I was able to use aribaud's uboot patch :) and I can tell you now, that it works with EBD :) .

U-boot command line with saving option is very pretty thing :D .

Hi guys,

Thanks for a very valuable thread. Even though i couldn't tell from the picture on post #1, knowing the pinout of J2 and probing for 5V made me figure out where was pin1, with the future goal of soldering a serial port connector and connecting with a modified DKU-5 cable. I'm not there yet - my Edmini v2 used to work but it just mysteriously failed after i opened it up. Probing the Hard disk power connector gives me no power when the unit is powered, so i'll have to look for fuses on the board...

For the record - and having confirmed with the now-reactivated imageshack link from post no 1 (for some reason it didn't work for me the other day) - pin 8 is closer to the power connector and corner of the board, while pin 1 is closer to the Marvell chip and closer to the middle of the board.
EDIT: now that I re-read some of the thread, i could have saved myself some time. I figured the first post had summarized it, but reading the whole thread with attention to details answered my questions after the fact.
