wow that sparkfun jig is REALLY cool!! I don't understand why everyone is so scared of soldering though, unless they simply just don't have a solder gun (you should have one anyway).
I think i will order that sparkfun breakout and solder a resistor in for a nice complete jig.
Since this thread was one of the ones that inspired me to make a Download mode jig, I thought I'd share what I put together today.
Made with a MicroUSB female plug, 300kohm resistor, & wire from a torn apart ethernet cable. I had originally planed for it to be half the size of what it is, and a lot cleaner (without a loop in it). But soldering to the damn usb plug was a pain, and the tins are fairly fragile.
It works like a charm though!
