If you use the various mkimage tools, you will find that the patched images fail the checksum tests but load and run anyway.
JFYI, U-Boot was never changed by any KT firmware update. KT's OS hasn't access to U-Boot paritition (read access, at least; it looks like idme tool can write to it).

Recent versions of kernel can access eMMC boot parition, but this functionality isn't present in KT's kernel/modules.
