Have you tried initializing the card with the latest Host AP driver
version (with firmware upgrade enabled)? If only the STA image was
corrupted, it should be possible to fix it without Genesis mode (well,
unless the corrupted STA image is doing something horrible). However, if
the PRI image is also corrupted, Genesis mode might be required..
