What do you want to achieve anyway? Flashing is absolutely not needed
for using the phone with osmocom-bb and still highly experimental, in
fact, the only person I'm aware of that successfully flashed a phone
so far is prom, but only for playing with the bootloader.

For normal operation just use osmocon with layer1.bin.
It will upload the layer1-binary in the internal SRAM of the phone and
run it from there, and you're just fine with that.
