    It’s much easier to wire a jumper like on this picture:

    Hopefully they’ll add a jumper/switch in the next version.

    I wrote a review of the ladyada vs this adapter.
    This adapter is definitely simpler to use, and it’s nice that it’s prebuilt.
    I’ve found the RX/TX LEDs essential when you’re blind flashing a module.
    The only thing this is missing is a reset button, which is essential for blind flashing and flashing modules that go to sleep (ZB END DEVICE AT).
    I wrote a picture of a hacked up way I did that:

    but I would have saved a lot of time figuring it out if it had come pre-installed.
    The module is also missing an ASSOC LED, which can come handy.
    But please, just add a reset button or jumper, this module is great for module flashing and programming otherwise.

No public wish lists :(
