I have this device. I never have to pass an argument to usx2yloader I
also have never used nrpacks=1. I never needed to. The first time I
set it up I ran the fxload on the first firmware that is needed. Then
usx2yloader just works without any argument. The usb light should light
up on the device once both sets of firmware are loaded up. I had to run
lsusb to figure out were it was mounted in my /proc/bus/usb. I believe
you need to have usbfs for any of this to work.

fxload with the first rom came with the EZ-USB package.

I highly recomend doing by hand first before assuming that hotplug has
done anything at all correctly.
I can give you more details once I have my debian box working again.
