Any info about system setup? Did you try to boot without SD card and hold ABC buttons together?

tested on md1 and md2 with/without sd card with/wihtout abc pressed every combination.

altera .pof 2.05/2.06/2.07 programming works fine with usb blaster but always get black screen.

read on russian forums about building parallel port adaptor to reformat flash roms? but not too clear with google translate

Yes. This thread is about flash content restore. But for now programmer works only with LPT based ByteBlaster.
1. Use CPLD Recover for prepare to programm.
2. Use Programmer for burn BootLoader into flash.
3. Use work CPLD Core for restore CPLD logic.
4. Use OS update for reflash entire OS into flash by BootLoader.
