Have I fried my freerunner?

After a couple of years of fairly trouble-free 
qtmoko-FR use, I used a cheap in-car charger on a 
recent trip. The charger died, and the FR itself 
began exhibiting a number of odd behaviours such 
as not coming back from suspend, indicating 
charging status when it was not charging, 
crashing, and after a couple of days, not booting 
into qtmoko at all.

Instead, I get an error like "debugfs dir creation 
failed -19", then a Debian login prompt. 
Unfortunately, I haven't been able to ssh into the 
FR to investigate, as it doesn't show up on my 
debian laptop as usbX or ethX, only as /dev/ACM0, 
so I'm stuck as to how to get the USB networking 

Any help appreciated.
