Problems running U-Boot from USB on i.MX6 Solo

Hi, I have a Boundary Devices Nitrogen6 Lite board which I've flashed a bad U-Boot image to (like this: http://boundarydevices.com/i-mx-6dq-u-boot-updates/). I need to recover this bricked device and I read here that the way to do it is connect my PC to the dev board with a USB A/USB A cable. I've done this however I cannot see my dev board when I plug it into my PC.

 

I have another board with the same CPU (i.MX6 Solo) that does appear on my PC (when I type lsusb) when I plug it into USB however my Nitrogen6 Lite dev board does not appear.

 

How can I flash a new U-Boot image on if USB doesn't work? I've tried using different combinations of the boot switches but no luck. It looks like the USB bootloader is broken on my board....

 

Thanks,
Ralph
