They were dropping at over 7,000 feet per minute at the start of whatever event caused the crash, then climbed back up at about 3,000 fpm, dove back down, shot back up at around 9,000 fpm, did another cycle, and at the start of the next dive data e was lost. It was recorded via the transponder.
ADS-B data is not considered reliable enough for accident investigations and the real story will likely be revealed in the flight data recorder, which was recovered late Saturday.
An important note about the csv file. Rows are in time order based on when data was processed from each receiver and not necessarily in chronological order.

If the video isis released along with the claim of responsibility is genuine, I would say it was definitely a bomb on board.
What's scariest about the vid is that the bomb is possibly being triggered remotely by those filming it, or they had a timer set to an exact moment.
You can clearly see an explosion in the middle of the aircraft followed immediately by black smoke.
