    Fedora-Server-armhfp-28-1.1 not booting : CRC error

    Dear fedora community,

    I'm trying to get the latest Fedora Arm Server Image (Fedora-Server-armhfp-28-1.1) running on my Cubietruck Plus, following the instructions given at the fedora arm installation wiki site

    Using fedora-arm-installer on an up-to-date fedora 28 system I successfully installed the server image to my microSDcard via

    Code:
    fedora-arm-image-installer --image=Fedora-Server-armhfp-28-1.1-sda.raw.xz --target=Cubietruck_plus --media=/dev/sdb

    Output of this procedure:

    Code:
    =====================================================
    = Selected Image:                                 
    = Fedora-Server-armhfp-28-1.1-sda.raw.xz
    = Selected Media : /dev/sdb
    = U-Boot Target : Cubietruck_plus

    When I power up my CT Plus with this card, u-boot reports a CRC error, reboots and keeps cycling in error and rebooting:

    I tried to write the image to the card multiple times, always with the same result, I even tried another microSDcard...same result.
    The microSDcard is fine, when I dd the linaro server image to it, my CT Plus boots perfectly fine, so it's not the card.

    Can someone point me into the right direction or name some members of the fedora arm team I could contact, I don't know what else to do right now

    Thanks in advance!

    EDIT: It turns out that this is a u-boot-error: the u-boot defconfig for Cubietruck Plus doesn't enable SD/MMC boot media. I recompiled latest u-boot with this enabled and the image is booting now. Here are the screenshots for configuring u-boot:
