Default [Question] Android development & GetItNow Recovery

Currently I'm working a custom kernel for the Casio Commando (Verizon phone)

It uses little kernel bootloader, and most likely Casio is using a security feature as follows
Q2) How do I disable ‘fastboot’ for my commercial device?

A2) Personally, I would like to see commercial devices leave ‘fastboot’ enabled.
  It goes in the spirit of Android Open Source Project where end users and 
developers have access to the source code to allow them to modify it and 
upgrade their device over usb using ‘fastboot’.  However, if OEMs or network 
providers want to lock down ‘fastboot’ it can be done by disabling the keypad 
and usb driver in bootloader.  This can be customized in the following files:


Is there anyway to access nand (my guess that's where lkb is located) so that we can change this so we have fastboot/keypad up and running?

Also, when i do
# cat /proc/mtd
dev:    size   erasesize  name
mtd0: 00200000 00040000 "misc"
mtd1: 00800000 00040000 "boot"
mtd2: 12c00000 00040000 "system"
mtd3: 0a000000 00040000 "cache"
mtd4: 19000000 00040000 "userdata"
mtd5: 00300000 00040000 "persist"
mtd6: 00a00000 00040000 "recovery"
Since the boot partition is available to me, can I use GNM Recovery to "flash" a new custom kernel? (I've already pulled boot.img, split it and it has the zImage and the ramdisk)

Also, what's the misc section at mtd0 (bootloader?)

Thank you for any help,

First Droid: Htc Aria (AT&T) (rooted, s-off, and i forget how many different roms on it)
Current Droid: Xperia Play R800x rooted by zergRush unlocked by Alejandrissimo, now running my own CM9 build (or build your own) and a slightly modded FXP kernel & lovin' it.
