Yes, you did. You made several errors.

First, this has nothing to do with U-Boot, so  your  posting  is  off
topic on this list.

Second, you use a TQM8xxL configuration on a non-TQM8xxL board  which
is an invitation for trouble.

Finally, your MTD configuration is inappropriate / incomplete.

Beware of the Turing Tar-pit in  which  everything  is  possible  but
nothing of interest is easy.
