How old was the U-Boot version that you upgraded from?
Eg. did you update from the Freescale version shipped with the
board to a version from the Denx git repo, or was it a old Denx
repo version to new version upgrade that broke things?

The MPC9349E boot sequence was modified at one point, and
so to boot a new kernel you had to also change the HRCW.
I forget the details, but here's my notes ...


see the comments on p18.

I have an MPC8349EA board as well, but I haven't had time to
test it yet.

Hope that helps.
