[GTA01 Qi] doku fuckup and SD-Boot problems

I have just flashed Qi and have two questions.
First, http://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/Qi clearly states that the boot
menu via power+aux will still work.
I was sceptical about how that should work since gta01 has no NOR flash.
But I trusted the source. Needless to say that there is no boot menu!
Am I right in assuming that the wiki is just BS in this regard?
If that is so, I like to change the text to warn others.
And, how can I get my device in DFU-Mode now? Am I right in assuming
that Qi has none?
Does this mean that when I trash my rootfs I have no way to re-flash?
How would I write a new bootloader (or whatever) to NAND via a running
And secondly. I did flash Qi because booting from SD with U-Boot as
described in the Wiki did not work for me.
Somehow u-boot was not able to read the SD (8gb SDHC).
(Sorry, I have no exact error message because I stopped debugging when
the USB console trashed my hosts USB subsystem)
I thought maybe Qi does it right.
I have a SD with one ext2 formated partition containing the rootfs and
/boot/append-GTA01 and /boot/uImage-GTA01.bin
But it still always boots from NAND.
I tried /boot/append-GTA01 with rootfstype=ext2 root=/dev/mmcblk0p1 but
this did not work either.
PS: Remember GTA01! Some people seem to forget them. ;-)
