Remove battery.
Start flasher.
Connect usb cable.
Insert battery. (Now it is seen by kernel and dmesg shows it)

I just didn't understand that it makes difference which order usb is connected and battery is inserted.
It makes no difference if those steps are done in 300ms time period :-)

Now I fully believe N900 is unbrickable (until I found method to brick it ).
Probably the only SW way how to brick N900 is to erase CAL partition... Erasing anything else can be fixed by cold-flashing. N900 is basically unbrickable if you have working USB port.
