it was stretch (latest-armhf-minimal.tbz)
I have used makesd gta04
I have then moved the content of the second partition to a temporary
folder. I have uncompressed the latest-armhf-minimal.tbz in the sd card
second partition then I have copied the lib/modules folder from the
temporary folder into the /lib directory in the partition.
I have then put the sd card in the phone and booted.

The sd card has a boot.scr,u-boot.img etc on the first partition.

No reaction anymore on the screen and button/leds. No reaction with
both buttons pressed either :(
There is nothing on the serial line also using the USB cable :(
I have also tried pserial using the JTAG cable like this : 
./pserial -p /dev/ttyUSB0 -f uart-monitor.bin
and it is waiting for the ASIC id and nothing happen...

I have charged the battery on an external charger just in case and
tried again without success.
