Not for the screen program, which is what Yioryos was asking about.
Just 115200.  Adding ,n,8,1 achieves nothing, screen ignores it.  One
can use cs8 to specify the bits per character, but Linux and Mac OS X
default to eight bits already.  Parity and stop bits cannot be
specified to screen.  The port defaults are already good enough.

I agree that the unreadable text shows something has gone wrong.  But
I don't think it is baud rate, parity, bits per character, or stop bit

I've undone Yioryos' change to the Wiki page.

Yioryos, do you still get this strange output?
