As you already noted, it's not listed in the Table of Hardware...are you asking for someone to work on bringing support for this device?

If so, can you also provide a boot log output of the serial console?

You haven't provided much information to begin (i.e. boot position configured in bootloader).

Hello,

Yes I'm asking for someone to work on bringing support for this device.

How can I get boot log output of the serial console ?

Where and how can I find boot position configured in bootloader ?

Thank you
