When i test my cables i prefer the following test procedure:
Plug the cable in, use a terminal program (e.g. gtkterm or cu) to
connect at 115200 baud. Press the powerbutton. You should now see
someting like fmttool error and some garbeled chars. This indicates that
the Connection from the Phone to the PC works properly.
Then unplug the cable, short circuit the last 2 pins on the audio jack
and type some chars. The chars should be echoed on the screen. This
verifies the correct function of the sender (PC to the Phone)
When these 2 tests are passing properly you can be sure that your cable
is working properly.
PS: Try to get a FTDI cable or build one yourself - FTDI is a lot better
than the Prolific and it enables you to use the burst_ind branch.
