Had the same issue. Solved it re-running 'configure-uboot.sh' with
rootfstype=ext2 instead of ext3, but leds were not working for me in the
new version and decided to downgrade anyway. Moreover, with ext2 the root
partition needs to recheck at boot everytime system goes down uncleanly,
which happens often to me.
