Finally my new toy arrived: Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex Net

seagate goflex net

  • 1.2 GHz Marvell Kirkwood 88F6281
  • 128MB RAM
  • 256MB NAND
  • 1x GbEthernet
  • 1x USB 2.0
  • 2x SATA
  • 2.3 W power consumption

I acquired it for 40 EUR which is quite a bargain for a computer with these specs.

I already found the pin headers for RX and TX so hacking it can start right after I got myself a new serial usb adapter.

In the photo above, there is a 10-pin header. In the upper row, the three pins from the left are GND, TX and RX. With screen I can then use:
