Hi Maelvon,

from a distance I would guess the filesystem on your first partition
(/dev/mmcblk0p1) is vfat and not ext2.

Have a close look at the, check the line with
rootfstype=... from the first entry (after bootcmd=...). 

It should read (change it to): rootfstype=vfat requires a fat partition for the first partition.
Debian on FR in contrast has discontinued booting from fat [1].

As the was written for Debian on FR [2] the script
does not honor vfat boot partitions. See [1] for discussion (follow the
links to the Debian issue tracker and the smartphone-userland ML).
