I didn't want to change that logic since (1) I can't test it, my device
doesn't go through that code and (2) failing there on account of that
check would error out and not support the device (as far as I 
understand from the code). So if a (theoretical) device would only 
return valid one minute after it is connected, this will cause a
regression. I might be wrong, but I figured it's better to do one thing 
at a time.
