Sounds like an ideal reason to learn how get these things to network boot an alternate kernel (of our own devising).
The code is in the u-boot for the DX 2.5.8 firmware version, I have not checked if it was ever dropped.
And while on the subject, didn't Yifan create a network booted kernel with a custom initramfs?
