Shorting the USB boot pins is the gold standard in all this. If
that cannot get you the 601a:4740 back, I'd say you need a new Nano :-)
I really want to understand what happened to the device, I think it
should be within the warranty so just return it to Tuxbrain and Tuxbrain
will ship you a new one?

Where did you buy your Ben?
As a last resort, you can still try to short the USB boot pins with
a soldering iron...
