Edit the default /boot/cmdline.txt
Change loglevel to 5 to see boot messages
# loglevel=5
Change speed from 115200 to 38400
# console=ttyAMA0,38400 kgdboc=ttyAMA0,38400
Start getty service
# systemctl start getty@ttyAMA0
Enable on boot
# systemctl enable getty@ttyAMA0.service
Creating the proper service link:
# ln -s /usr/lib/systemd/system/getty@.service /etc/systemd/system/getty.target.wants/getty@ttyAMA0.service
Then connect :)
