SPI test release 2 updates

It's getting a little crowded in the Test Release 2.03 and 2.04 - SPI mode thread, this locked thread will help keep all the updates in one place.

The 2.03 and 2.04 bitstreams and v0.2, v0.3, and v0.4 firmware use an SPI link between the PIC and FPGA instead of an UART. Please read the update guide for instructions, and to test for the bootloader.

***Bitstreams***
Bitstreams configure the FPGA at startup. They are stored in the ROM chip (IC2), load updates using ROM update mode.

There are two new bitstreams for the FPGA that implement an SPI interface, 2.03 and 2.04. Read more and download them here.

***Firmware***

Firmware is code that is executed by the PIC microcontroller. It is loaded into the PIC (IC1) with the USB bootloader.

The SPI bitstreams require a PIC firmware update. Firmware v0.2 is included in the 2.03 and 2.04 packages.

There is a firmware v0.3 available with some minor updates here.

There is a v0.4 firmware with some bigger updates here.

For firmware v.04 you will need to use the updated .INF file included to reinstall the OLS after updating. The corrected PID is used, and the device now appears as 'Logic Sniffer CDC-232'.

*** Firmware v0.5 and v0.6 ***
v0.5 and v0.6 feature increasingly optimized SPI read routines to enhance the reliability of USB->SPI transfers. Read more here.

***Bootloader rescue package v1***
Some Logic Sniffers shipped without a bootloader. This rescue package will reprogram the bootloader with the Bus Pirate.

[s:]Here is an experimental package that can program the bootloader into the Logic Sniffer using a Bus Pirate. This should help out a few people who got an OLS without a bootloader. Read more here.[/s:]

Here's a single download with the 2.04bitstream and 05/06 firmwares.
