I originally took out pin 8 for the OLD cable was that i wasa afriad there were traces between 7and8 that i couldn't see... just to eliminate if it was soldered or internally traced together.....

I bought a newer cable that supports past the march 2008 build date and can do up to 2011 i believe... and that cable worked on my 08 and 07... haven't used it on anything else tho...

Hope this helps...
