Hmm this could be because of discharged battery, but hard to tell without 
seeing log. You can try booting with USB cable plugged in - this could give 
some more power to modem.

You can also try format the SD card and unpack the rootfs once again (just the 
rootfs partition - no need to repartition it).

Yes it should.

If you can see the qtmoko icon it means that the kernel is started and the 
rootfs was mounted - the icon is on target rootfs.

Can you try setup USB networking and check if you can SSH in?

If yes, can you try:

	ssh root at
	/etc/init.d/qtmoko-gta04 stop
	. /opt/qtmoko/qpe.env

This should output some log.
