If the various 'leave it charging' methods don't work then your best bet is 
the nokia battery or charger for nokia battery.

Stick the charged nokia battery in the freerunner, plug in the usb lead or 
power adapter, and boot. Once it has booted remove the nokia battery and put 
in the original one that's dead. This will now start charging as normal.

You can also connect up more or less any other single cell Li-Ion battery or 
suitable external PSU to do the initial boot, then remove and plug in the 
dead battery. If you think this method needs more detailed instructions you 
shouldn't be attempting it ;-)
