I spent some more time with this tonight.  I don't see an sd image in


but I grabbed the u-boot files and copied them to /boot in an older 
hardware validation sd image. I booted this image and flashed the new 
u-boot. After this, I couldn't boot from any sd cards, it would always 
fall back to NAND. After putting back the old u-boot (Jun 2013) my cards 
all work.

I must be doing something wrong, but I have no idea what.

My cards are ext3 formatted.  None of them have the old MLO stuff 
installed.  My boot folder contains the dtb files, uImage, bootargs.scr, 

Neil, were you successful in booting 3.16-c2?
