Yes, "-i" would be ignored in this case and prism2_srec refuses to
download that flash image to the card. If you want to risk killing the
card, you can of course comment this verification out from prism2_srec.
However, I would strongly recommend first testing a RAM-downloadable
version of the exact same image to verify that it works with your card.
