When the file isn't found the install process "touch"  
/etc/default/flashkernel creating the file.

There is a best hack for it from Stefano Cavallari posted in this list 
(http://lists.openmoko.org/nabble.html#nabble-td832513) is better way just 
rm /etc/default/flashkernel
mkdir /etc/default/flashkernel

Flashing starts if exist a file named /etc/default/flashkernel (this name is a 
directory now) so it just "touch" the name.
