Recently playing around with different Firmware versions for 0801 I "finally" I bricked it :) ... YESSS, you did it niko ... "you are the man", LOL

Anyway, thats not the end of the world, I decided to unbrick it. First step is to do a "Direct USB Cable" where pin 4 and pin 5 has to be connected. There are different ways to do that, some are more complicated, some are simple. I have borrowed idea from @cem_ari, - he had easy solution ( HERE )

First I did easy-way ...
