+******************** WARNING ********************
+The compiled U-Boot binary is intended for NOR flash only!
+It won't work for NAND or SPI and will brick those bootloaders!
+Also don't go playing around with different U-boot versions or flash targets
+unless you've got the necessary hardware and/or know-how to unbrick your kit.
+2012.10 is known good for NOR, but BAD for NAND and SPI.
+******************** WARNING ********************
+You'll need to program the files created by buildroot into the flash.
+The fast way is to tftp transfer the files via one of the network interfaces.
+Alternatively you can transfer the files via serial console with an Ymodem
+file transfer from your terminal program by using a "loady" command
+from the u-boot prompt instead of the "tftp ..." commands stated below.
+Beware that serial console file transfers are quite slow!
+Remember to set the P1010RDB switches to NOR boot if you want to use
+your newly built U-Boot.
+1. Program the new U-Boot binary to NOR flash (optional)
+    If you don't feel confident upgrading your bootloader then don't do it,
+    it's unnecessary most of the time.
+    => tftp $loadaddr u-boot.bin
+    => protect off 0xeff80000 +$filesize
+    => erase 0xeff80000 +$filesize
+    => cp.b $loadaddr 0xeff80000 $filesize
+2. Program the DTB to NOR flash
+    => tftp $loadaddr p1010rdb.dtb
+    => erase 0xee000000 +$filesize
+    => cp.b $loadaddr 0xee000000 $filesize
+3. Program the kernel to NOR flash
+    => tftp $loadaddr uImage
+    => erase 0xee080000 +$filesize
+    => cp.b $loadaddr 0xee080000 $filesize
+4. Program the root filesystem to NOR flash
+    => tftp $loadaddr rootfs.jffs2
+    => erase 0xee800000 0xeff5ffff
+    => cp.b $loadaddr 0xee800000 $filesize
+5. Booting your new system
+    => setenv norboot 'setenv bootargs root=/dev/mtdblock2 rootfstype=jffs2 console=$consoledev,$baudrate;bootm 0xee080000 - 0xee000000'
+    If you want to set this boot option as default:
+    => setenv bootcmd 'run norboot'
+    => saveenv
+    ...or for a single boot:
+    => run norboot
+    You can login with user "root".
