OK. This is what I have been using to help me decipher. Its based on me looking down onto the board and how you have your layout pics.
ah, so the 3 left pins on my pcb are even wrong then :(

OK its got confusing... but using 6,7,8 as right direction.. I think you drew the middle pins offset the wrong way.. should be like this...

.. so then it should match the pcb pins/layout..

Me to, I hate cables. No chance of me building them..
Yes and I hated doing the soldering on them too but it was only three wires to swap around on my cable.

Yes that’s an interesting pattern I have never seen on an ST. It happens on every power on and reset.

That is my next item. I have a spare rom chip from your store already. Thought I would reprogram with DiagROM - any pointers?

Tasks for today:
  • Put DiagROM on ROM chip
  • Hunt for USB to Serial Cable - I have one somewhere
  • Most likely my USB to Serial Cable is 9pin D-SUB so will have to build an adaptor to the STF Serial port.
