Ugh sorry U-boot has a kind of shell thing, you need to get in there
during a short window at boot when it should create a ttyACM0 on your
host PC.  You use minicom or such to connect and bang on ENTER until it
stops and shows a prompt.  Then the two commands shown above will
reprogram the U-Boot environment to pull larger kernels thereafter.  You
can type


to continue with the boot.
