Many good news, but... not enough.
First of all, we closed the device and reconnected the screen.
The device has thus been able to finish the boot and we got to the login screen.
The TP functioning input was the No. 113; the presence of TP or their position it may change on a different hardware revision (mine is no.7): in the photos on wiki iliad and those attached at this post, there aren't TP near the debug connector.
At this point, we could then also login via serial port, but did not know the passwoord root (this isn't a standard word). Fortunately, I had already installed a version of Busybox. We have therefore launched a shell directly on the device and cleared the password field in file setup with the password (encrypted) to root.
Then you can login as root via serial port. The blank password is maintained even when you restart the device.
Soon I post a complete boot log file and a how-to for the entire procedure.

Unfortunately, you can't modify the boot process. It will be also difficult to recompile the kernel OpenEmbedded...
But I'll think about later.

I have not idea about it, sorry.
