[GTA01 Qi] doku fuckup and SD-Boot problems

I have just flashed Qi and have two questions.

First, http://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/Qi clearly states that the boot 
menu via power+aux will still work.
I was sceptical about how that should work since gta01 has no NOR flash. 
But I trusted the source. Needless to say that there is no boot menu!
Am I right in assuming that the wiki is just BS  in this regard?
If that is so, I like to change the text to warn others.

And, how can I get my device in DFU-Mode now? Am I right in assuming 
that Qi has none?
Does this mean that when I trash my rootfs I have no way to re-flash?
How would I write a new bootloader (or whatever) to NAND via a running 

And secondly. I did flash Qi because booting from SD with U-Boot as 
described in the Wiki did not work for me.
Somehow u-boot was not able to read the SD (8gb SDHC).
(Sorry, I have no exact error message because I stopped debugging when 
the USB console trashed my hosts USB subsystem)

I thought maybe Qi does it right.
I have a SD with one ext2 formated partition containing the rootfs and 
/boot/append-GTA01 and /boot/uImage-GTA01.bin

But it still always boots from NAND.

I tried /boot/append-GTA01 with rootfstype=ext2 root=/dev/mmcblk0p1 but 
this did not work either.

Any ideas?

PS: Remember GTA01! Some people seem to forget them. ;-)
