To run the Boot Monitor and have it display a prompt to a terminal connected to UART0, set User Switches 1, 2, and 3 to OFF and reset the system. Standard input and output functions use UART0 by default. The default setting for UART0 is 38400 baud, 8 data bits, no parity, 1 stop bit. There is no hardware or software flow control. Use these values to configure a terminal application on your PC to communicate with the Boot Monitor.
If the Boot Monitor has been accidently deleted from flash memory, see Rebuilding the Boot Monitor or platform library for information on loading the monitor.
