Hi Mychaela,

This is a wild guess, but perhaps OsmocomBB uses median values that do
work in the general case, perhaps thanks to the fact that base stations
allow some room for error? I'm no expert on OsmocomBB so I could be
completely wrong.

Anyway I'm super happy to learn nothing is wrong with the RF front-end,
and I'm sure the flash bug can be solved eventually! Congratulations :-)
