I'm not an expert on this but I have looked into this before as I'm good with electronics and building stuff and didn't want to shell out for the ORT JTAG or similar device.
What I found it came down to was signal timings (again I know little about this) and the ORT system has a programmed chipset that can read / write commands at the required timings using a software interface written for the user control.
I believe you can RS232 TTL some commands but it will achieve little and Terminal script is complicated.
Some people that have tried the serial way have soft / hard bricked their bootloaders often and been left with the link dead. It is also painfully slow.
I'd recommend the ORT system as their are lot's of updates for a variety of phones and a good user support forum.
