Hi Naveen,

In my experience it's preatty hard to have a patch that works "out of the 
box"! ;-)

This is normal.. NK.bin it's not in "u-boot format" (required by bootm) you 
should use
bootwince command:

# bootwince 0x10000000

>Even i tried with the NK.bn0 which is a raw binary file in winCE, but

Same as above. NK.nb0 is a plain binary file, ready to be executed (with 
the only requirement
that it should be loaded at the right address).
You should just run WinCE from NK.nb0 by executing:

# go 0x10000000 [or whatever your address is..]

Sorry.. I cannot help you here! :-)
