I would check over your points carefully. Use a manifying glass if you have to, but make sure that no solder is between any two points. After that, check all the pads to make sure that they are all still there and nothing got yanked off at any time (it doesn't take much with them). If it was flashing as soon as the chip was put in, then it's probably the same "some soldering missed where it was supposed to go" problem that a lot of people (myself included) have had.
