That would be bad. But I can probably write it back from my running 
system. My phone still boots from internal flash.
But I have no idea how I should do this right now. (no block dev, mtd 

And I'm not shure if I will. I will stick with Qi when SD-Boot works. 
That would be a easy fallback if things go wrong.
