HydraFW console commands

Benjamin Vernoux edited this page Mar 16, 2017 · 6 revisions

I recommend Putty for terminal to be used with HydraBus(hardware) and hydrafw(firmware) connected with USB1 or 2.

Those commands are updated towards firmware release HydraFW v0.8 Beta: HydraFW (HydraBus) v0.8-beta-0-ga2aab9d 2016-10-13

HydraFW (HydraBus/HydraNFC) supported commands


  • All commands shall be separated by a space.
  • During a blocking read or write which wait for data(for example Slave mode), you can abort the wait by pressing HydraBus UBTN button.

Example logging all in/out text from terminal in SD card file test.txt in root dir:

  • Start logging:

    • logging sd test.txt on

SD Card commands

> help sd
SD card management
show           Show SD information
mount          Mount SD card
umount         Unmount SD card

mkdir          Create new directory
script         Execute script from file

SD scripting

It is possible to run predefined commands stored in a text file on the SD card using the command sd script <filename>.

  • Each line will be passed as a console command and its output will be displayed in the console.
  • Any line beginning with a # will be ignored.

It is also possible to execute an autorun script. Simply create a file called initscript in the root of the SD card. This file will be executed at the console initialization.
