Unfortunately, no.  Looks like this phone has been bitten by this bug, 
since all of the evidence matches up:

I'm just not sure what I can do about it - I haven't got a debug board, 
and I wasn't really planning on buying one.  

This morning, it occurred to me that I might be able to throw in an SD 
card to boot off of, which would allow me to flash NAND, but without a 
safety net of NOR flash to use, I'll have to proceed carefully.

Either way, this is still kind of crummy.  Is there any information on 
how widespread this problem is, and is there anything official that 
Openmoko can do about it?
