PermaLink Olimex MSP430 JTAG Debugger Pinout Differences03/01/2013
Thought I'd warn folks about it here as well on the Olimex forum in case they want to use Tag-Connect cables w/ any Olimex MSP430 debuggers.  The official TI FET-UIF pinout is as follows (if you're looking at the end of the 14-pin cable, pin 1 is at the upper left of the red indicator, then 2 is lower left, etc.):
1 - RST
2 - VCC to board
8 - TEST
9 - GND
Instead of following this standard pinout, Olimex decided to move RST (SBWTDIO) from pin 1 to pin 11.
Then on all of their MSP430 development boards, they added two jumpers to make their boards compatible w/ their MSP430 debuggers and TI's:

If you're using the MSP430 Launchpad to test this, disconnect the RST/TEST/VCC jumpers to disable the Launchpad's built-in debugger which doesn't support blowing the security fuse.  Olimex's MSP430 debuggers at least don't require the 330 ohm resistor that the TI ones do to protect their devices from damage from the high voltage used for the security fuse operation.

p.s., on 20-pin MSP430 devices, pin 1 is VCC, pin 20 is VSS/GND, pin 17 is TEST, and pin 16 is RST
On the tag-connect 6-pin IDC cable, pin1 is RST, pin 2 is VCC, pin 5 is GND, and pin 6 is test
