P1010RDB, u-boot and SD Cards?

I want to boot into u-boot from NAND flash and then load the linux kernel and rootfs from the SD Card using u-boot.


Can this be done with the currently shipping P1010RDB ?  How? What specific u-boot settings are needed to configure u-boot to do this?  What SD card formatting?


My P1010RDB is apparently pretty old. 

U-Boot 2010.12-00063-g8669298-dirty

805-26374 900-26374 REV E

700-26374 REV C


CPU:   P1010E, Version: 1.0, (0x80f90010)

Core:  E500, Version: 5.1, (0x80212151)


Can this be done with the version of silicon/software that I have in my version of the P1010RDB?  If not, can the required components be upgraded?


Am I correct in thinking that the boot_format utility is used only when booting directly to SD card (without u-boot) ?


Thanks in advance for any help,
