Running Barebox on i.mx28/karo TX28 module

We are using the TX28 module from Karo (based around the i.mx28) and want to switch to using Barebox as our bootloader. We have successfully compiled Barebox using the TX28 default configuration and can run this successfully from uBoot. We’ve also been able to configure our graphics driver to display a splash screen from Barebox, which is very useful.

 

We now want to replace uBoot with Barebox and cannot work out how to do this. The instructions http://barebox.org/documentation/barebox-2011.05.0/tx28.html say that you also need the ‘bootlets’ archive and ‘elftosb2’, presumably to include the early initialisation code for the i.mx28. We have both of these but do not seem to be able to find any information on how to use them to create a bootable Barebox image.

 

Can anyone provide any information on how to do this?
