Timing issue, perhaps? I noticed the following in common/rtmp_mcu.c in
the official driver:
RTMP_WRITE_FIRMWARE(pAd, pFirmwareImage, FileLength);
/* check if MCU is ready */
Index = 0;
if (RTMP_TEST_FLAG(pAd, fRTMP_ADAPTER_NIC_NOT_EXIST))
RTMP_IO_READ32(pAd, PBF_SYS_CTRL, &MacReg);
if (MacReg & 0x80)
} while (Index++ < 1000);
To be honest, I haven't checked to see if something similar is in
