First Qi takes care of root= so the need to handle that is gone.  It
sets root= according to where it found the first usable kernel.

So need to remove what you have in partition 1, and add a kernel named
/boot/uImage-GTA02.bin into partition 2 (since that's your rootfs),
which should be ext2 or better ext3.

Qi will check the first 3 partitions for something it can use before
falling back to NAND.
