Comment(by andy):

 There's a simple rule of thumb, if the backlight came up then blame the
 kernel, not Qi.  Qi doesn't bring up the backlight, so your kernel is
 quite far along with booting.

 What you're describing though is what happens if you try to start GTA02
 without a battery or with very low battery.

 As Paul says enable kernel debug messages on LCM and find out your kernel
 or hardware -- not Qi -- problem that way.

 For the larger issue of feedback, we can enable kernel splash image to
 help it.
