Might I suggest another wording?
"Extensive development effort went into the development of the UART boot
mod. Mechanically adept users with good soldering skills can easily perform
these mods. Others may feel uncomfortable using the first tool
(firmware_flash.rock) for reflashing the firmware.
If you are starting with a known-good image, you are unlikely to experience
problems. The flash tools have been stable for quite a while. Several users
have used them extensively, even flashing while playing! Although it worked,
it's not the recommended method. ;-)"

I believe the word you are looking for is "fluid".
