So that means your bad flash did the erase ok, but failed during
programming (due to either the full flash, or having the disks plugged
in during flash - probably the latter), and therefore it couldn't find
the sercomm trailer in the last block on reboot, so redboot fell into
failsafe upgrade mode.
It's strange that you weren't able to telnet into redboot in that mode ...
Good to hear that your slug has recovered. I bet you'll be following
the README a bit more carefully from now on :-)
Did you update the howto with your solution?
