Sorry for late answer. I sure do remember. I'm in IRC quite often.

That is only needed if you do the UART boot mod, to bring the box into a
state where it expects code from the UART.

If your box is not completely dead, you may not need this, can use the
monitor feature of my flash loader, minimon is buit in. It is started with
F3+On, behaves like frozen, but is waiting for commands from the serial.

The program is in cvs, but only source code. I've placed a compiled version
here now:

I'm starting to write a document _now_.
