*EDIT Found the info that the serial port is just 2 solder pads on the motherboard. I can work with that. So now the question is just whether I can actually install the jailbreak that way.
I believe you can flash a 5.2 image and bridge up via fastboot, Or maybe someone has a 5.3+jb image already put together (or extract these from the bridge installer IIRC)

***Take the above with a grain of salt, I don't actually have a device with fastboot***
