Bricking recovery uses the fallback mechanism.  There is a supervisory 
board attached to the target; it controls physical power on/power 
off/CMOS reset and also sends build/flash/test commands to the target as 

The exact code/details for the controller are not public at this time, 
though I would be happy to provide additional information on the target 
and/or entertain target hardware configuration requests (add on cards, etc.)
