Usually you're correct, this applies. For this time, I'd prefer people to
use the plugins in my package (or really fresh ones from the daily build),
because 2 days ago I introduced new checks to prevent programming a firmware for
a wrong model, as far as possible. (I can't distinguish FM and V2, but this
is no harm because they're practically identical.)

For UCLs, you can still program a wrong one, but easily fix it by F1-boot
and using the right one.
