Hi Sébastien,

Is this the first time you've used the module?

If so, I suspect a cabling issue. The flex connectors can
be a pain to get right the first time:

Theres a photo here of how the cables should be connected
to Nitrogen6X (i.e. blue side up):

I'll try to get a Dylan image built, but that may bleed into
next week, since I'm taking a few days off.

Please advise,
