The card has already v1.5.6 in it but it makes no differ, it is always beeing like
that. I have updated from 0.8.0-->1.3.6-->1.4.9-->1.5.6 and always prism_srec
falsely complains about imcompatibility.

Yes, but the message is false alarm. I can flash with '-i' parameter and everything
is OK after flashing. I can also flash with tohose same files with windows tool and
it doesn't warn anything. Sometimes it seems to be too strict with some firmware
files.

I agree with you, prism_srec is safe. I have also flashed couple of cards and they
are always worked 100% after that.

Best Regards, Jar
