Booting from SD card was the only boot method I tested on mx53ard in
mainline U-boot.

All you need to do is:

make mx53ard_config
make u-boot.imx

Then flash u-boot.imx into the SD card as per instructions from

Booting from NAND I haven't tested, but the procedure to generate
u-boot.imx is the same.

Please note that the boot from NAND relies on the mx53 ROM. If you
need to store environment variables in NAND, for example, then you
would need to add support for mx5 nand driver.
