Bad magic number

Hi folks,

I've compiled the openmoko images with MokoMakefile. Written them to
the device via dfu-util. However, when I turn it on, the device is
showing the openmoko splash screen and waiting there. So I switched to
the boot screen and selected "boot" option from there and it turned
off just after writing the following message to the screen:

NAND read: device 0 offset 0x44000, size 0x200000
  2097152 bytes read: OK
## Booting image at 32000000 ...

Bad magic number
Press [AUX] to power off

I thought there is something wrong with the kernel image so I
re-written it. No good, the same result. I'm writing the


file to the "kernel" alt setting by entering the command:

sudo ./dfu-util -d 0x1457:0x5119 -a kernel -R -D

Does anybody have any idea on what I'm doing wrong?
