How do I reflash when I can't get to the boot menu?  The boot menu I'm
talking about is the one when you hold the aux button and press the power
button.  If that's the NOR boot menu, then I can't get to the NOR boot menu.

I'll try what Brian suggested in his email and leave it with no power
(battery or charger) for a while... I'll do overnight, because I can't
remember if I left the battery out for any length of time after this has

I'll let everyone know if this works.

Thanks!  :)
