There are a lot of "how do I get this updated" topics here, but they all seem to end the same way ... frustrated and nowhere.
So, can someone tell me, with 100% certainty which cable I need to get, what breakout board I need, whatever... and links to Amazon so I can purchase them.
Of all the different cables I have (FTDI, Prolific) and breakout boards, not a single one will work. And once I do get the necessary cables, I will probably have spent more on them than I did on the mini itself.
You know what would really be nice... just the the arduino .. I should be able to use my Netduino 1/2/plus as an RS232 device. Then I just hook up the pins to the mini and away I go.
