When trying to get into NOR do you already have it plugged into your 
charger? That is how I was able to finally get mine to boot, you only 
need the actual OpenMoko charger until it starts up then you can use 
whatever USB charger you prefer. Just plug into wall-socket and phone, 
start NOR twice, viola.
