I've been using HTerm<http://www.der-hammer.info/terminal/> and Parallax Serial 
Terminal<http://www.parallax.com/downloads/parallax-serial-terminal> with 
Ellduino without problems.

@Pekka OK this is what Ivan and I were trying to figure our during hackthon. We 
noticed that only Arduino IDE was able to talk over serial.

@Jose Thanks for the sample code. I was using same code but wrong GPIO pin. So 
how do you get the serial working? By hacking Arduino IDE in the same way as 
Pekka said, or you made another customized terminal?

The current Ell-i board (Ellduino) Serial requires that you don't pull DTR or 
RTS up(?), IIRC.  They are used for reseting the board.  If you use a standard 
terminal program, that will pull the handshake signals so that the board goes 
to the reset state.

This is one of the things that will be fixed in the next boards.

The issue should be documented here:
but as of today, it is not.

Here is how we fix this for the Arduino IDE:
