Is this because it's an unsigned build, and I have no devel key after the reflash? If so, how can I put a devel key onto an unbootable XO?

Yes. If you installed you blew away your dev key.  Do you have a back 
up?  If not then you can get your key again via the collector key. 
Details here:

Put the key on USB disk in the /security dir and boot the machine with 
the USB disk inserted.  That will unlock your XO.

then at the OFW ok prompt type disable-security

After that your XO will be forever unlocked unless you enable-security
