+### Flash the board
+The board is flashed using its on-board boot loader; the
+[nrfutil](https://github.com/NordicSemiconductor/pc-nrfutil) program needs to
+be installed. That can turn the binary into a suitable zip file and send it to the
+The process is automated in the usual `make flash` target. For that process to
+complete, you need to enter the bootloader manually by pressing the board's
+reset button. Readiness of the bootloader is indicated by LD2 pulsing in red.

Well there is the added convenience of not having to press any buttons when doing `make flash` (and the added convenience that this will probably solve the CI problem too)
