RE: shiny new rp2430 (A400) won't boot :-(
Hi, Thibaut --
It's a shame that the article that fit the problem I'm experiencing
happened to include an out-of-date detail not related to the problem
itself. Your clarification is appreciated by me and everyone else,
and I'm certain that when our rp2430s can boot from the Debian CDs,
I will join the ranks of the many who appreciate the work you and
others have put into making these releases more robust.
Have a great day & thanks again!

This is absolutely wrong. I wrote that code more than a year ago...
