Forum: µC & Digital Electronics Trouble with downloading a code to MCU STC12C5A60S2

So I bought the DIY kit from AliExpress. (All of the info links about 
the thing will be at the end)

Soldered it (except the LEDs, I want to get the MCU issue resolved 
first). And additionally soldered a reset button in.

It seems that at the moment my MCU (STC12C5A60S2) contains wrong code.
I tried to download the Cube code into it via 4pin UART, but the STC-ISP 
just stuck at "Checking target MCU..."
I checked MCU with oscillograph and it seems to be working fine 
including reset button. It recieves signals on the TxD leg, but does not 
react to them.

Anything that I found so far was that my UART may be 4.25V and changing 
the UART programmer will help, but:
I thought if I connect the board to a power bank and UART at the same 
time then any signal from PC should be solid 5V. Correct me if I am 
wrong on that.

Any help would be appreciated.

Tx->RX, RX->Tx connected?

Boy, do I feel myself extremely dumb right now >.<

Thank you! :)
