Yes, I have used this procedure a couple of times to test the installer.
You can also recover the original firmware by extrating the partitions
from a official upgrade firmware.

Before you install debian, I suggest upgrading to the latest official

enable telnet in redboot for us.

Yes. the beauty of standard subsystems..

"rm -rf" only sounds scary if you don't have backups
