We use u-boot to boot a CE 5.0 image.  I can't tell you what's wrong
your boot, but I can tell you it can be done.  The commands are
what you have - we use different addresses and filenames.

You do need to ensure that the image is loaded where it is built for -
means verify your config.bib is building the image for the address you
downloading to.

You don't need any special tools to create the .nb0 file, just an entry
config.bib to set the ROMSIZE.
