Oh, you mean that. I haven’t touched either bootcmdfromsd or
bootargsfromsd, so that shouldn’t be the culprit. They point at
the first SD partition, which is where I’ve unpacked the rootfs.tar.gz,
and if the partition wasn’t correct, u-boot wouldn’t be able to load
the kernel anyways.

Can you confirm that the latest image can in fact run from SD card?
