Hi everyone, I am very excited to be using the Novena board, but am having a bit of trouble bringing it up. The novena-firstrun menus come through uart as garbage characters. All of the linux boot messages come through legibly (though I have no idea if they are correct). However, the firstrun menu characters display as: " D⎺┼'├ ├⎺┤␌␤ ┐␊≤└▒⎻".

These characters are displayed when using the "screen /dev/tty.serialname 115200" command. I have dug slightly deeper and found that using a program like CoolTerm there is legible text in the message (but there is no way to go through the menu in CoolTerm).

Has anyone had this issue before or know a possible cause?

Any help is appreciated!
