The OP says it fails to boot even with a full Nokia battery, so it's 
unlikely to be the dead battery problem.

The two other failures mentioned are (1) removing the battery while 
plugged into USB and (2) corrupting Flash memory

Does anyone know exactly what is damaged by removing the battery while 
plugged into USB? Is there a way to verify that this in fact is the 
cause of the problem?

Another poster suggested damaged Flash. In this case, inspection with 
the debug board should verify this and allow for repair. I presume you 
don't have a debug board? Check whether someone near you has a debug 
board, or send it to someone with a debug board.
