I've got one of these, though I haven't had to de-brick one.  A quick
search seems to indicate that you'd want to use OpenOCD to halt the
cpu, load uBoot into memory, resume it, then flash from memory.

This seems to be a pretty good description of how to fix it:

If you want to ping me on irc (ryan-c at freenode) I can probably help if
those instructions don't work.  I've also got a working DreamPlug at
home, and I'd be happy to image it and send you the image with
instructions on copying it to your SD card.
