- it looks that I am in the "chicken" and the "egg" problem ...
According to Thomas (see above), I can not rely on the flash phys start address, given to me "verbotum" - so I can not set the value in .config 
Thomas - in what software you advise me to "decode the values in the registers to get real address values" ?
