Comment(by lindi):

 Did you nandwrite the udfu image or the one without udfu in the name?

 Not sure if it helps anybody but I build a cross-compiler with

 # debian lenny
 # i386
 # normal user (with sudo access)

 mkdir armel-cross
 cd armel-cross/

 sudo aptitude install dpkg-cross apt-cross fakeroot dpatch gawk flex
 realpath automake1.7 debhelper cdbs
 apt-get source gcc-4.2 binutils glibc

 cd binutils-2.18.1~cvs20080103/
 TARGET=arm-linux-gnueabi fakeroot debian/rules binary-cross
 sudo dpkg -i ../binutils-arm-linux-gnueabi_2.18.1~cvs20080103-7_i386.deb
 cd ..

 apt-cross -a armel -v -i libdb1-compat
 apt-cross -a armel -v -i libc6
 apt-cross -a armel -v -i libc6-dev
 apt-cross -a armel -v -i linux-libc-dev

 cd gcc-4.2-4.2.4/
 export GCC_TARGET=armel
 debian/rules control
 dpkg-buildpackage -b -rfakeroot
 sudo dpkg -i ../libstdc++6-4.2-dev-armel-cross_4.2.4-6_all.deb  ../gcc-4.2
 -arm-linux-gnueabi_4.2.4-6_i386.deb ../gcc-4.2-arm-linux-gnueabi-
 base_4.2.4-6_i386.deb  ../g++-4.2-arm-linux-gnueabi_4.2.4-6_i386.deb
 ../cpp-4.2-arm-linux-gnueabi_4.2.4-6_i386.deb ../libstdc++6-armel-
 cd ..

 cd ..

 and then built Qi with

 sudo aptitude install uboot-mkimage
 git clone git://
 cd qi
 make CPU=s3c2442 CROSS_COMPILE=arm-linux-gnueabi-
 dfu-util -a u-boot -R -U backup.udfu
 dfu-util -a u-boot -R -D image/qi-s3c2442-master_36bb5c03756268ff.udfu
