I found a workaround for the "autoboot from environment" thing!

Just moving the offset where environment is placed (from 768 to 766). uboot finds crc corruption and boots with desired environment defined in board header (include/configs/mx50_rdp_mddr_512.h in case of my aura hd)

Attached bootlog of customized uboot with minimal environment (which prints itself during boot )

Code:

OK

Starting kernel ...
So, its time to find a way to ext2load a kernel from external sd and coding that in bootcmd. Something like

Code:
bootcmd=run cmdline_external; run load_custom_kernel; bootm; run cmdline; load_ntxkernel; bootm
This way if kernel is not found in external sdcard (or isn't a valid uImage file) the system will boot from internal partition.

I need to find some time to check The watchdog is killing me all the time :/
