When Edimax was forced to release the sources, they released a different
source archive than the one currently available. That one contained some
more files than the current one does. I'll upload it today for you to
download it.

webs and the flash program share some sources. Originally, flash's sources
are contained in the LINUX directory of webs.

Ok, let me know what your results are.

That's a JTAG. But AFAIK no software can drive it yet (except maybe some
commercial software?). See forum.amilda.org, forum MODs for some
information that may be useful for you to experiment with jtag.
