[edit] My SD card stops working? Do I need to reformat it again? Why does this happen?

"sync" Command should be ran prior to ejecting/un-mounting the SD card from the Linux box. This is done to ensure file system integrity. If this is not done then the SD card may get corrupted and may need to be reformatted. If “Busybox” is installed on the platform a "sync" command should also be ran prior to removing the SD card from the device. This will prevent SD cards from corruption.

It could be due to the boot FAT has been corrupted. Just format it with mkfs.vfat refer to SD Configuration and copy your files again.

[edit] Ethernet address not set

Its observed that sometimes the MAC id is not programmed in the SMSC ethernet controller on the debug board. So the dhcp/tftp may not work out of the box. Workaround is to set the u-boot environment variable ethaddr. The ethernet address is printed on a white sticker on the debug board.

Eg: setenv ethaddr '00:08:EE:02:C6:97' This will be needed only if the EEPROM of LAN chip is not programmed. Not all boards need this fix.
