I was looking the power-up phase and there, as far as I understand,
RAMP_DELAY is HW driven and no SW delays required like in power-down
path, code does power-up path correctly but still there is a pop. This
made me thinking the idea below.

I don't have TWL4030 TRM but AFAIK, the TPS65950 is the same chip and
I was looking HS power sequencing from page 691 in TPS65950 TRM.

Would it be possible that pop is not caused by the HS output but
inside the chip, like from DAC?

One nice method to hunt these is to use gpio to trigger scope at the
beginning of sequencing and toggle it at each step so it would be easy
to see what step is causing the strong pop and what kind of delays
are required to mask it.
