It might be a silly suggestion but please double-check the usb cable
used, try to connect directly to the motherboard (avoid front-panel
connectors and usb hubs). May be you should try another PC.

By no means (as you have no dboard) you could have damaged the NOR
bootloader by dfu-util. It should just work. The battery must be
charged before the flashing (you can even use any full-charged Nokia
battery). Try removing the battery for some time (to ensure clean
boot), then boot directly into the NOR uBoot, connect to PC and try to
flash. If it doesn't work, use another cable/usb port/pc.
