You had mentioned this issue in February. And since I currently flash using USB 
I went ahead and bought the evaluation card for the Analog Devices ADuM4160 
power/signal isolator chip (see last pic on jks.com). Even though I programmed 
the GPIO pins on the micro for open drain I didn't know if the +5 on the USB 
from the host computer would fight the signals from the 5370. Plus I didn't 
want the ground loop. So the isolator chip splits the power domains and the 
micro is powered by +5 from the 5370. Works great. But I haven't found anyone 
who sells the chip in small quantities yet.

You also had mentioned PyRevEng back then. I will try it. It will be very 
useful at this point.
