Hmm, there's something weird about how your device boots. Are you
loading u-boot from NAND or from NOR ? When you bring up the boot
menu, it says at the top whether it's NAND or NOR.

For all this, you should be using the NAND u-boot, not the NOR
one. The NOR version does indeed not have a persistent

Assuming it's NAND but stil doesn't work, if you enter u-boot and

setenv foo=bar

Enter u-boot again, then

echo ${foo}

Do you get  bar  or just an empty line ?

Plan B: use the SD card image. That one should boot fine even with
NOR u-boot.
