[WP-34S] Cable and flashing options for Mac users
Unless someone has a better or more updated idea, I am planning to fabricate a cable starting with Katie Wasserman's detailed instructions documented here: Homemade ARM-based Calculator Programming Cable (thanks Katie!).

Next, I want to figure out a way to use a Mac to flash the WP-34S. What I do have is a serial port adapter and communication software that I routinely use to store backups of my HP-48GX, so there has to be a way to do it.

Does anyone have any updated information on such a project? I knew what I was getting into when I bought the WP-34S and never planned to flash it myself, but it's just too cool a device not to play with. Any advice or words of encouragement welcome.

Also, I presume HP's original serial programming cable has become so scarce it's not even worth looking for one, or am I wrong about that? I'm not sure what to look for or even what its correct name is. I know about Harald Pott's USB board, but I'm trying to keep things as simple as possible, without further modifications to the calculator's hardware.
