Thank you for the idea. Quick search didn't find anything useful regarding JTAG, I will have to dig deeper. I'm currently trying to build yifanlu's fastboot tool, that might help too.
I'm already thinking of buying a new one. It's just such a hassle to get it across the ocean - shipping within US, shipping to Europe, customs, VAT, etc. It can take up to a month.
