Oh, I see. So you've wiped your device completely clean. What did you
do that for ? ;-)

We don't have a procedure for directly flashing the NOR (the NOR driver
in u-boot hasn't been adapted), so I'd suggest to devirginate the NAND,
and then use the NOR flashing procedure.

If you don't want to touch the NAND for some reason, you could also
load u-boot into memory (like the devirginator does), then use it to
boot Linux from an SD card, and then flash the NOR.

Does this help ?
