I can confirm going into download mode through the power menu as opposed to manually going into download mode with the three-fingered knuckle shuffle affects the ability to flash the modem.

I was getting problems on MH8 modem, with it taking a long time on boot to get a signal, and also it seemed to be affecting my GPS lock speed (which is odd as GPS is kernel-related as far as I know) Anyway, I went into download mode using the traditional method, reflashed MGA modem, and it worked first time.

So, don't use the power menu to go into recovery mode for a modem flash it seems.
