Hi Paul and Jan,

I successfully flashed Qi on NAND but it doesn't changed anything at all

When I try to boot directly (pressing power button), I got the koolu 
spashscreen directly and then got stucked
When I try to boot from NOR menu (pressing AUX and power button), then 
choose 'Boot', I got message s saying that NAND is being reading and 
kernel is loading (with a final message Loading Kernel image ....OK) 
then koolu's splashscreen and got stucked
I don't know where can be the problem since I flashed (in one shot, 
using neo tool) bootloader, fs and kernel (with no error messages)

Booting without sd card into the phone doesn't change at all (same 

Just for trying, doe anyone has a splashscreen ? I cannot find one on 
the web
