[u-boot] Wrong image format for bootm command

I'm having trouble booting my neo.  I can get into NOR flash, and NAND 
flash, but the NAND flash only supplies one option: the "Boot" command.  
This command prints a message saying "Wrong image format for the bootm 

I have grabbed the latest u-boot from:
> http://downloads.openmoko.org/daily/gta02v5_and_up-u-boot.bin
I have flashed this into my NAND using dfu-util from my NOR with no errors.

My flash image is currently the FDOM image.  I was attempting to install 
debian on my uSD.  I updated to the latest uboot, configured it using a 
script provided at debian.org, and then booted into my flash image and 
proceeded to install debian.  The process halted after partitioning, 
which then advised to use 'cu' to add some environmental variables to 
booting.  After this, I rebooted and began receiving these errors.

I currently cannot boot into anything.  I can log into NOR (which seems 
fine) but I am unable to flash a working NAND (Just that "boot" option).
