Yes, the U-Boot serial console support seems pretty widespread.

Not very familiar with USB but not scared. I'll give it a shot.
While we talk about USB protocols, is there any information on how BROM

protocol. If not we will reverse it. It smells like it's a kind of
serial channel over USB running an xmodem download into SRAM.
