well, to rub salt in it ...
are you sure, mtd0 was the right device file to write to?
the kernel-ipk has a postinst script, that before flashing the new kernel  
checks for the right device -- the same way allows for seeing what the  
other devices are for (i do not have it avaliable atm, but once you got  
your neo up and running again, you should look for it.)

next thing is, that it might be helping if you could narrow down your  
position somehow, i assume it is somewhere in the black forrest area,  
maybe there are owners of a debug board near you who hesitate to do the  
postal thing, but would happily help, if you're in the neighbourhood.

>> Input file is not page aligned
>> Data was only partially written due to error
>> : Success
> Success? Error?

good lord! with a message like that i would never have shutdown the thing!
