[MinnowBoard] Important - Firmware Update

Hey Alex:

Which ftdi serial cable you're using? Would any of these work OK?

I haven't received the MAX board yet, but want to be prepared for any 
eventuality (I'm sure I'll have to re-flash the board more than once). I 
have the USB to TTL cable (that I use with the Olimex board), but my gut 
tells me it is not the proper one.

If you've got a dediprog can you read the firmware back out and compare hash sums between the firmware sent and the firmware you can read out?  What program are you using to flash the firmware (flashrom from Linux?).
