Thanks for posting this, it is a great creative solution.
Do you know if there is a way to extend the time
in the NOR boot menu?  (i.e., to make the timeout
longer) - or, better, is there a way to add a menu choice
"Wait for more intructions"    (or "CHARGE" :-)

While trying to flash the phone, it's annoying
to have to juggle FR, keyboard, mouse, etc.

Should I open a ticket?  (It would be the
first for me on this product, need to learn how :-)
