Amazon Dash Button: Sourcing the connector

I should share my findings more often...

I recently ordered one of the Amazon Dash Buttons and popped it open.

These were some great references:

Albeit some were more eager to open it (possibly lacking the torx bit).

I wanted a clean solution to flash the little STM32 part and talk to the wiced module and so I found these connectors:

They fit just swell. I have a debug board in the works and am working to verify the pinout is what I expect. More to come from these little 99 cent dev boards. Thank you Amazon.
