Thanks Timur,

So yeah, as I didn't recall, for low-boot, the HRCW is part of the
U-Boot image. So I think you need to check your jumpers.

Timur mentioned; make MPC8349ITX_LOWBOOT_config

But I'm not sure that would be correct for an MPC8349EMDS board.
So his comment in J22 may refer to the ITX board, not the MDS.
Check the MDS manual, and you'll figure it out.
