Flash used > 100% ?!?!

I’ve recently noticed that I’ve been able to utilize more than 100% of the flash, Any idea on wether I can get to 200%?

Am I about to blow up, or are there known issues with this count?

Output of arm-none-eabi-size:

text data bss dec hex
111476 428 4832 116736 1

In a nutshell:
Flash used 111904 / 110592 101.2 %
RAM used 5260 / 20480 25.7 %

This part is for the older Core and has not been updated for Photon and Electron. Part of the reason why is that Photon and Electron use a modular building strategy and so the amount of memory used for code is a combination of the user code and the 2-part (or soon 3-part) modular system firmware. Both Photon and Electron have more code memory available and the problems that the data help you with on the Core are largely not a problem any more.

You can ignore the nutshell part.

Well, that’s a relief. I upgraded from a core and the build experience and wifi reliability have been great… I just happened to notice this and got worried I was just about out of space.
