Flashing Images
To place a new u-boot image in the NAND flash and then boot
with that new image temporarily, use this:
tftp 1000000 u-boot-nand.bin
nand erase 0 100000
nand write 1000000 0 100000
Using the Device Tree Source File
To create the DTB (Device Tree Binary) image file,
use a command similar to this:
dtc -b 0 -f -I dts -O dtb bsc9131rdb.dts > bsc9131rdb.dtb
Likely, that .dts file will come from here;
Booting Linux
Place a linux uImage in the TFTP disk area.
tftp 1000000 uImage
tftp 2000000 rootfs.ext2.gz.uboot
tftp c00000 bsc9131rdb.dtb
bootm 1000000 2000000 c00000
