Although U-Boot can support two protocols for transfering files, kermit or y-modem, the bootloader does not support the <tt>loadb</tt> or <tt>loady</tt>. Minicom only supports y-modem protocol.
We do not have to resort to a direct serial file transfer however. The 'mtdparts' command that is used to define flash memory partitions can be used to reset the partition table to the defaults before running 'urescue' to start the TFTP server.
