Exclamation Help with flashing an N-Gage QD with a Cyclone Key

Recently I had bought a Cyclone Key in order to flash my phone/handheld (N-Gage QD), I've been able to successfully activate it despite the product being seemingly unsupported and it can also recognise the phone.

There seems to be some issues however, first being that VPP is overvolting to 22.90v from the "nominal 9v". I've not found any information online on why this is the case except from another post here in the forums where another person had the same issue. Nonetheless the flashing program (CycloneBox) continues to flash the phone but appears very 50/50. At times it'll stop at 3%, sometimes at 10% or around 20%, and requires the Key to be replugged and program restarted.

I've inspected the cable used to interface with the phone (gs-at133 i think) and it seems fine inside, no loose connections and appears to contain the correct resistor values for the BSI terminal, so it leads me to believe this wouldn't contribute anything to why VPP is overvolting with the cable, and has to do with the Key itself?

So again my questions are this:

1. Why is VPP overvolting and can something be done to prevent it from doing so, or is this just a false reading?
2. Why does the program stop flashing at seemingly random times, is it due to VPP overvolting, or a software issue perhaps?
3. If it were due to the software, is there a fix? From some videos I've seen on Youtube there is an updated version of the program showing the year 2013, though all the installers online I've found so far are version 1.22 from 2012, even still would resolve anything?
4. Is there a possibility that Phoenix firmware packages are incompatible with the CycloneBox software, and if so where can one obtain the right files? (MCU/PPM)

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
