    Well if the VBUS line is not connected the PMIC is muxed
    to USB carkit mode so the lines go to the UART on the SoC
    through some level shifter. If it works it should not cause
    any issues, the symptoms I saw earlier was corrupted UART
    console and noticed that what worked best for me was 3.3V
    ftdi based devices out of the collection of random pl2303
    and ftdi cables I had around.

    I guess somebody could try to measure the uart lines with
    a scope with nothing connected and sending out data from
    droid 4. Or look at the carkit spec for the UART voltage
    levels.

    Regards,

    Tony
