hi petr,

i don't see a recipe what you've asked but our wiki has some good
details on u-boot:

also see these two threads on the topic: and

if all else fails you could construct a crude hack which overwrites
the appropriate portion of nand with one of two known u-boot_env
images: 1) "boot operating system foo by default" or 2) "boot
operating system bar by default"

there will be hassles, of course:
- grep
for "add env-variable"
- see
- beware a moving target :/ see

good luck!
