Another way to flash Wifi Kit 32

ahhh I did something bad and broke the USB Serial chip on my Wifi Kit 32 dev board w/OLED. The board, GPIOs and display still work, is there any other was to flash it other than the USB to serial adapter ?
Thought I would ask before tossing it in the trash and opening a new one.

I shot 12v to the USB serial chip and it no longer works, gets real hot but it does seem to hurt anything (other than not working ha ha)
