AFAIK the newer  kernels should be able to boot just from the USB power so try 
connecting the FR to the charger, booting up without the battery in and 
replacing it when the FR has booted up fully.

Also I remember reading somewhere about booting into the NOR u-boot and 
pressing the AUX button to keep it awake for a few minutes till it had charged 
enough to boot the OS.

hope this helps,

(the booting off just USB works on a recent shr testing but I can't speak for 
anything earlier)
