one thing to keep in mind: the limiting factor on progress on flashing 1024 nodes at a time was the printout of the "current address" being flashed. I had to turn that off or a 30-second task could take much, much longer.
I want to add to this: We've had cases where printing too much output would mess with the timing (maximum time allowed until a block has to be completely written) due to heavy output of "current addresses" over a serial line. Not only would it take several hours to finish but the result was a few dozen non-booting systems. Very frustrating.
