USB Jig for flashing phones

Flashing the custom kernel for the Galaxy S II is currently not 100% reliable. You don't need the custom kernel by default, but if you are using it, then you absolutely must have a USB jig. The jig puts the phone into "download mode" for recovery even when the phone image is in a bad state.
