Hi Peter and thanks for your quick reply!

Peter> Then it's time to debug. Do you have an /etc/securetty on the target

Yes, ttyS0 is listed in /etc/securetty. The only change i made from the non 
working to the working version is changing the busybox version and rebuild buildroot.

I tried passing init=/bin/sh to the kernel, but then I end up without a shell. 
The console is still responsive and echoes everything I type and produces 
newlines when I hit return but nothing more.
