Removing the heatspreader is not required for accessing the RX/TX/boot_sel pins.
However, soldering to SMD solder points is required.

Resistor number Function Info
unmarked Serial TX above R322 (left circle in the image)
unmarked Serial RX below the C196 and C194 markings (right circle in the image)
R158 boot_sel2 Solder to the top pad

Serial uses Baud rate 115200.

To boot via UART you need to pull boot_sel2 (results in CFG 0x4) to GND.
