Did you use bootstrap mode to merely download it or install it into flash?

FWIW, I just confirmed that latest u-boot CVS +/- a few hours works on my
MX1ADS board:

U-Boot 1.1.2 (Aug 24 2004 - 11:49:40)

U-Boot code: 08400000 -> 08418414  BSS: -> 0841C868
RAM Configuration:
Bank #0: 08000000 64 MB
Flash: 16 MB

MX1ADS board with MC9328 MX1 (0L44N), Silicon ID 0x0005901d

Hit any key to stop autoboot:  0

I used the mx1flash install utility included in the MX1 RedBoot package
available from Freescale to install u-boot into SyncFlash on my board.
After installing u-boot into flash via mx1flash (using bootstrap mode),
I set S22-2 (BOOT1) OFF and u-boot works ok for me. Default console is on
UART1 at 115200n8.
