I would look at the flat cable carefully, the gold fingers at both ends
and the neck where it widens.  First my flat cable cracked at one edge
cutting the fingers, then it tore at the neck.  Then I got a new one :-)

The flat cable solution is pretty evil, but there doesn't seem to be
much chance of improving it because it's not exactly an enduser feature
and it's expensive to put the FTDI on the main board.

But I curse that flat cable more than once a week myself.

| neo screen flashes and stay sometimes on until I launch openocd.

LED5 lights on TX action of serial console, I guess LED7 is TX action
from PC on JTAG.
