You can then log into the USB serial terminal, and restore the ramdisk image by hand.

1) Copy the ramdisk-origi.uimg to micro-SD card
2) Put the card into the reader
3) Mount it:
mount /dev/mmcblk0p1 /mnt/sd
4) cd /mnt/sd
dd ramdisk-orig.uimg of=/dev/mmcblk2 seek=10240 count=600 bs=512
5) Reboot

Good luck!
I downloaded the "enable-adb" last night from when I got my T1. Started as flashing the minimal expansion package... and ran still it asked me to press any keys... I did so but it turns into bootloop ever since

I would like to ask a few more question before I try my luck in restoring the T1

1 - How may I "log into the USB serial terminal"?
2 - Where can I obtain "ramdisk-origi.uimg"? From the zip of

Thanks a million again and frankly I appreciate your work on T1 so so much.. I dumped my Kindle 3 and jump onto T1 once I see your work
