I have pasted the boot session below. Just something to note is that even when I was able to boot off of the nand and had a properly formatted micro SD card my gumstix still did not boot from the SD card. This was the reason I decided to rewrite an image to nand as I figured there was something wrong with it. Please let me know if you see anything wierd with the boot session, otherwise I am beginning to think there may be a hardware related issue.

The default behavior of the bootloader is to boot from the microSD
card when it detects it's there, otherwise it boots from the built-in
NAND flash.

I think one of the symptoms you're reporting might be incorrect; you
shouldn't be able to get a (I'm assuming a Linux) kernel panic without
also having a valid bootloader present.  Are you sure the bootloader
on the NAND flash was shot?

It might be a good idea to pastebin the entire boot session.
