Thanks for the reply Mike....

Even I was trying to set environment variables on GTA02, not on Linux. I trust this is required for invoking shell, as I am getting unable to find path for init. correct me if I am wrong.

That page is referring to u-boot environment variables, not Linux 
environment variables. You set them through the u-boot console, accessed 
over USB from a terminal program on your desktop PC. See and some of the 
pages linked from there.
