It'd be nice if the protected flash upgrader in the empeg could talk USB, then people without real serial ports could still reflash a completely hosed empeg.

(Yeah, I know it's not gonna happen, but a guy can still wish)

I was always too afraid of getting it wrong, and then requiring desolder/resolder of the flash chip (we didn't have any JTAG reflashers back then!)

You can reflash over ethernet with hijack though, no?

Yeah, but if it's "hosed" (a technical term), there's no Hijack.
