As the installation instructions aren't generated yet. I've seen one case where somebody was trying the wrong commands to backup the EFS because that person accidentally scrolled the page without seeing it due to the touchpad not being in a convenient location on that person's laptop.

That could be very dangerous if that happens with the BOOT partition as on some devices this is the bootloader.

In addition if we have u-boot in the kernel partition this will really need to be fixed as u-boot is small enough for heimdall to not refuse to flash it in the bootloader partition, which would break the device (the bootloader is signed so adding u-boot there as-is won't work).
