You can't brick an omap3 board, since it has a bootrom that can use
sd, nand and serial to boot a stepping stone. There is a whole page on
the code.google wiki about recovery and I suspect using plain old
google will turn up pointers to that on the first result page.
might help -> try the script recover_beagle.sh - it requires a serial
port and a miniusb (b type) cable.
Not that it matters now that you have it figured out, the actual steps
1. first shutdown the board.
2. run 'sudo recover_beagle.sh /dev/ttyUSB0' in a terminal -> you need
super user permissions(sudo permissions) to run this script.
3. Keep the pushbutton S1pressed while powering on the board -> there
are two white push button switches, use the one closer to the edge of
NOTE: if your nand is completely erased, the above step wont be
needed, but what the heck, use it for preventing all kind of cases
where you have an MMC card/partly corrupted nand etc..
4. Once the terminal starts downloading, you can remove ur finger off
the S1 switch ;)..
5. wait a bit for files to reach and be flashed :).. the script should
exit happily once it is done.
NOTE1: the version of x-loader and u-boot in the tarball is probably
old, you may want to replace the files from u-boot once it is up and
NOTE2: I put a prebuild x32 ubuntu 8.10 binary out there, if you have
x64 bit or fedora or something else, and want to build the apps
yourself, feel free to download and build code from 
(TODO: Still planning on putting together a video showing the
process.... gah... i keep forgetting.. any taker for the same, please
- the video i have there currently sucks and has reported to create
nausea in few folks :(..
