No serial output from kernel on Iomega ix2-dl(ng)

Hi, I have a IX2-DL (that's what it said in the front cover) but it also said IX2-ng on the bottom white label. I am confused which one I have but I believe it is the DL as it has the 1GB nand and no spi flash.

How can I get it to work?!

If the SoC is the same, then it might be possible to modify the ix2-ng DTS to boot your ix2-dl. Memory is easy to adjust. Flash definition is really not needed if you have serial console, ie. you can modify u-boot envs in u-boot to boot the kernel.

So I would get the serial console boot log and post here. And then we compare the log to see if they both use the same SoC. If indeed they are the same, then hopefully other aspects such as GPIO for LEDs, are also the same. But it's hard to say unless you look at the GPL source, or test it after successfully booted into Debian.
