== Monitor ==
The board will connect to your DVI HDMI monitor via its micro-HDMI connector. You can use a micro-HDMI to HDMI/DVI-D cable to connect the board to the monitor. Your monitor should be able By default the firmware tries to support 1024 x 768 @ 60 Hz, which is setup the default better resolution used by the firmware. If for your monitor doesn't have a DVI-D input, you can also use a HDMI input using a HDMI/HDMI cable, in that case you should [[How_do_I_edit_my_kernel_command_line | edit the kernel cmdline parameters]] and replace :  omapfb.mode=dvi:1280x720MR-16@60 for this one :  omapfb.mode=dvi:hd720-16@60
== Network ==
You may now plug the Ethernet cable into the 10/100 Ethernet jack of the board to get network access. The default firmware configures the Ethernet device with static ip address (
== Keyboard/Mouse ==
The USB Host Now, plug your keyboard and mouse into any of the board is ONLY USB High speed (480Mbit/s). You will need a powered USB hub 2.0 to connect to most available USB devices. == SD-card ==
NowFinally, connect an USB hub to plug the USB Host and plug your keyboard and mouse SD-card into the hubSD-card socket. Make sure that the DIP switches are correctly configured. That's is all in OFF position except 5 and 7 that should be in ON position.
== Booting ==
With all the peripherals attached, plug in the wall adapter (5V DC) and power on your board. You will see a few lights flash, see how to red leds light up and after a few seconds may light up only a fixed green led. The sequence will be different based on software version. "Under the hood" the bootloader is preparing to load the linux kernel. The linux kernel loads and initializes the hardware and mounts the root file system. Finally, you will see a screen desktop like the following screenshot. The pre-installed firmware in its flash memory consists of a minimal Linux-based distribution with a lite X Window System and GNOME Mobile based applications created with Poky Platform Builder. You can use the mouse and the keyboard to dive into the desktop. [[Image:Poky-screenshot.png|thumb|500px|center|Screenshot of the Desktop of the pre-installed software]] == Remote connection via Ethernet ==

In your Host Machine, open a terminal sessions set up an Ethernet alias for your network interface,== Serial debug connection ==
$ sudo ifconfig eth0:0 192Now you need a Null-Modem DB9 female-female serial cable.168Connect the cable between the board and your PC.5.10Open the serial on your PC using your preferred serial communications program (minicom) and configure the port as follows:
Connect to the board using the SSH protocol 115200 8N1 no flow control (either software or hardware)
$ ssh Open the serial port and the debug shell prompt should appear. An empty password for root@192.168.5user should work to access to the shell prompt.1
An empty password for root user should work A detailed guide on how to access connect via serial debug port can be found by following this link: [[Using serial debug port to the shell prompt.communicate]]
