ch341a_miniprogrammer.jpg

This is 5V device without modification! It works for me(tm) but you have been warned

http://www.eevblog.com/forum/repair/ch341a-serial-memory-programmer-power-supply-fix/

Just lift pin 28 and put some tape under it to prevent any short circuit. Then solder one wire from this pin to pin 2 of AMS1117 and also to C4. The side of the C4 to connect is the one connected to CH341A pin 9.

jumper on pins

1-2 SPI flash programmer mode
2-3 TTL serial mode

supported out-of-box by flashrom, probably better option, but anyway:

schematics and info

I added soic 8 pinout over zif socket, because position of pin 1 is not obvious (or clearly marked anywhere on top). I suggest that you fix that with silver sharpy.
