meaning the only partition on that sd card?

there are some feedbacks (flashing led and vibration iirc), signifying the  
result of the checked partition (boot or skip).
when booted from flash, can you access the sd card? maybe it is not  
detected properly?

no idea. but i don't think so.
btw: with
sudo su -
you can get a root shell in ubuntu which removes the need to prepend  
everything with sudo and would have saved you from chmod.

- i am not quite sure how much information qi would print at all, but  
maybe you should increase the loglevel?
- if available you should compare the md5sum of the archive or download it  
again with another tool (wget) and compare both.
- you could in /boot remove the link
and instead _copy_
(yes, i know, symlinks are supported according to the wiki).
