I'm sorry to hear that. That's certainly frustrating. :-(

This might be a dumb question but could you use a native ARM toolchain
rather than cross-compiling? I know that depends on having a ARMv7-a device
that can run the toolchain, but perhaps that could be achieved with
emulation (e.g., QEMU).

Just a thought...
