Hi John,

It turned out that the image was not flashed correctly. Checksums between firmware on the device and the firmware file were not identical. Doing an erase and flash the image again solved the issue.  

Thanks! Alex

Obvious question: are you sure the ftdi serial cable is plugged in the right way round?  If you've got a dediprog can you read the firmware back out and compare hash sums between the firmware sent and the firmware you can read out?  What program are you using to flash the firmware (flashrom from Linux?).
