 I am having issues getting the HiKey to enter bootloader mode by linking J15
 pins 1-2, 3-4 (the board always boots not matter what).

I had a similar, intermittent issue because I was using a switch to link 2-3 but the connector was designed for a larger size than the J15 header, so it would make a bad contact. Fixed by soldering the switch to the pins ;)

 is there any other way to reprogram the bootloader?

I think the bootloader is supposed to enter fastboot mode if you link J15 5-6.
