First off, thanks to carlosmnk for the RPi image.
After pulling it apart and dumping the redisdb file for credentials (wiibox:wiibox), I've got a working miner (with some quirks)

I've also to compiled the miner from github in an attempt to run USB straight from the serial breakout, but received the same "cannot open sfards port" error on each OS. This is different from the "cannot find sfards port" you will receive when trying to launch a nonexistant device.

I believe this is something related to the CP210x drivers, as the serial board uses an uncommon quad port PN.
They really are just giant versions of the USB Dualminers and Gridseeds of yesteryear.

Also worth noting, I've got two different hash board revisions across my three blades.

I'm traveling all week but will post detailed pics and a sanitized image with DHCP enabled when I'm back.

While these chips are too cool to completely ignore, i do see why they had to abandon the project.
The sheer number of parts it takes to build a hash board is staggering, especially considering that this miner was launched when both BTC/LTC prices were much lower, and had recently been through a nosedive to sub $400.

Damn shame.
Had to buy mine broken from Russia, they just never made all that many.
