Yes, even under all NAND flash is empty/content distroyed. You could 
still using boot from NOR function (a backup u-boot in NOR flash), and 
using boot from SD card function into full system, then re-flashing NAND.

NOR also have 2 MB space, you might could port any thing into 2 MB space 
and try another flashing way (bt/wi-fi/etc), if you got debug board. But 
we never tried.
