Not true in my experience. I've flashed 6 H220's to the latest LSI 9207-8i firmware and all required a single step. All came directly from HP and were running HP firmware. By FAR the easiest flashing card I've seen.I believe some of the OEM SAS2308 cards like the HP H220 have a slightly more involved flash process (there's an "intermediary" firmware that needs to be flashed) but I don't think it's significantly more difficult than the SAS2008-based M1015 or H200.
using a p05 sas2flsh.exe: "sas2flsh -o -f 9207-8.bin -b mptsas2.rom" and then press Y when it asks you to flash anyways. Done. After that you can confirm the fw version of the card with the p20 sas2flsh: "sas2flsh -list" or "sas2flsh -listall"
