Unfortunately no such luck.  I disassembled my GoFlex Satellite this
morning and the CON1 connector is for the battery.

There was a promising set of 10 pads along the bottom of the PCB, but I
checked each of them with an oscilloscope while power cycling and saw no
sign of any serial activity.

The dmesg clearly shows that a console is configured to run on /dev/ttyS0,
I just don't know where to find it.

Pictures from my teardown (especially the bottom of the PCB) are here:

If you see anything I might try please let me know.
