Yes this happened to me OP. I didn't pipe something into mtdblock but 
somehow I lost my NAND flash which contained the things Cesar listed 
below in the quote (uboot uboot-env spash etc). You'll have to reupload 
your splash.gz and maybe your uboot-env. I got both of a friend, which 
worked, but apparently your uboot-env has a list of bad blocks in it 
written at manufacturing time specifically for your phone. Debug board 
can do this but my way seemed to yield good results albeit any problems 
unaware to me. Best of luck!
