Of course.

You JUST have to init your cpu, clocks and ram first! ;-)
This might be a bit complicated to do with brecs.

And of course you have to make sure that U-Boot does not do this init again!
That is #undef CONFIG_INIT_CRITICAL inb your u-boot/include/configs/mx1ads.h

But what is wrong with the solution:
1.) enter bootstrap mode
2.) download and burn mx1_rel_0.3.8\Bootloader\Bin\SyncFlash\boot.bin
     (to be found at motorola homepage)
3.) restart board
4.) select "burn bootloader" (or similar) from the menu
4.) connect USB cable
(a new HDD drive appears in your M$ Explorer ... ooops)
5.) copy your u-boot.bin onto the new hdd
6.) "eject" HDD (this starts the burn process)
7.) restart and U-Boot is running!

This is describe in some motorola document that comes with the mentioned
