Fast Bootloader for BragleBone and AM335x

I made a third level bootloader, that can load user standalone applications more quickly than StarterWare bootloader.
Can be adapted to work with all boards with AM335x TI microcontroller.
The bootloader can load applications with approximately 4.5MB/s depending to the size of fat cluster, the speed of uSD memory card (if a cluster of uSD filesystem is 16KB the speed is higher than one uSD card with 8KB cluster).
This bootloader is made to be loaded at address 0x87F80000(at end of beaglebone RAM memory), If you want to load this bootloader on another location please don't hesitate to write me.
Your application will be named APP.BIN to be loaded by this bootloader.

From here you can download the bootloader.
From here you can download the TI SDCard boot utility.
