This may be true, but it is WRONG for the original poster's question:
he asked if you can run an image from RAM before birnung the SAME
image to the final position in flash.
As you mentioned, many changes are necessary, and the final flash
image will bue completely untested in all these areas then. And one
of these untested areas is the most critical in all systems: the
setup of the memory controller and SDRAM initialization.
