Databook does say 25ms. From what I could gather this has to
do with the debounce filter time on the IDDIG pin after the
ForceHstMode/ForceDevMode is programmed. There is no way to
poll this. I think the change is acceptable, even to lower
the range as Julius suggested.

Agree with this. It shouldn't take nearly that long and you are
polling anyways.

As for the other change:

I'm not sure about this value or the reasoning/history behind
it. It is not in our internal code. It looks like it is taking
into account the delay for the ForceHstMode/ForceDevMode
programming. However, I think your change is conservative and
should be ok. Maybe Samsung engineers know about this?
