I think that Serial port refers to the PC standard. UART allows more diverse voltage. Not 100% sure though.


There is an in-depth article covering several Samsung devices in the SamsungSerial page


Device and documentation I/O voltage ID<->GND SOC TX SOC RX switch stock bootloader settings Comments
I9300 1.8V1 619 kOhms3 D- D+ MAX776935 * speed: 115200
* pressing the volume-down button during boot increase verbosity
It gives a shell once Replicant 6 has booted
N7100 ?
N7105 ?
Galaxy Nexus 619 kOhms4
Nexus S 150 kOhm FSA9480
Optimus Black 1.8V6 N/A2 DP3T

1 Measured between USB GND and USB VCC

2 Code is required to use the switch as you need to configure both the MUIC and DP3T switch

3 See The related driver source code

4 See the postmarketOS wiki page on Serial debugging

5 See the driver and the ifixit teardown

6 Reference: OptimusBlackSerial

Interesting links

  • There is a page on Serial debugging on the postmarketOS wiki that contains information for using the serial port for many smartphones models.
  • mv-uart A serial port adapter with configurable voltages (and GPIOs)
