I tried to copy the idbloader and u-boot onto a SD-card:

dd if=idbloader.img of=/dev/afd1 seek=64 conv=notrunc,sync
dd if=u-boot.itb of=/dev/afd1 seek=16384 conv=notrunc,sync

but not much luck, it still boots the stock image on the eMMC, and keeps the console tty at 1.5m, which for some reason I can’t read right now..

I would have expected at leat some output at 115200...

I read somewhere that It should boot from the SD if one is present, and it sure does with another linux image on a SD-card..

Are you booting from the eMMC or SD-card ?
