 we will know that, definitively, when adam's system successfully
boots, as we know that his NAND flash is corrupted.

 so far we have 2 sets of empirical evidence supporting the
hypothesis: adam's will lend a third.

and yes, if someone wants to risk completely bricking their machine,
change the NAND flash u-boot params, that makes it absolutely
unequivocably clear.

 i'd recommend that we set something up which tries that out (remotely
and easily) on adams already-bricked machine.

 that's assuming that the machine itself isn't damaged (which could
easily be the reason why it's not booting - nothing to do with the
firmware rewrite at all).
