Ah, there you are, misflasher #2. You have been very quiet about it. I
answered you posting, later tried to email you, no response.

My answer was here:

My sourcecode package contains the now user-friendly program to UART-flash,
called "RockFlash.exe":

Pictures of my recorder uart boot mod are here, an article is overdue:

For FM PCB revision 2.1, you find the serial at a kind of empty 2*3 header
position close to the headphone jack. RX is the square pad, TX is across. The
4*10k pullup array which you temporarily have to change into a pulldown is
right below the flash chip.
