I tried to install a Debian to test the qtmoko package.
I have already installed the new U-boot successfully.
Now, I used the makesd script to recreate a new filesystem on the sd
card and unzipped the latest minimal debian root file system.

I tried booting this and the screen flashed red 2 times immediately
after inserting the battery, then a blinking cursor and nothing else.
Thinking about a problem with the debian system, I forced the phone to
turn off by pressing the power button for a long time.

After this, impossible to turn on the phone any more.

I thought about a short circuit between the IR led and the screen
(happened before so I had to install a piece of plastic between them.
But it didn't move and I don't see where the problem might be.

I tried then to recreate the default sd card with makesd but nothing
happen any more on the phone.

Does someone have an idea?
