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.
