Avoiding modem flash-memory corruption?
On the PinePhone Software Release page, it says:

Quote:There is a document about using the modem [...] disable the modem before power off is pretty essential to avoid corrupting your modem's flash memory.

I have a few questions:
  • Do I still need to disable the modem before powering off the phone when I have powered up the phone with the modem off (via the kill switch)?
  • If I've booted the phone with the modem off then subsequently turn off the modem via the kill switch, should I disable the modem before using the kill switch to turn off the modem?
  • If the modem's flash memory has been corrupted, how can it be restored/recovered/reset?
