I knew could reboot before. However, I have the memory of changing the
memory map by some convenience.  It becomes impossible to reboot maybe
after that and.

It is bug for KUROUTOSHIKOU's u-boot.
  spec.  (Japanese page)

Can you see source of their u-boot?  In my memory, the string '500Mhz'

Can you perform 'saveenv'?

hit any key to switch tftpboot.
Hit any key to stop autoboot:  N    <-- this time, go tp tftp mode and alerm
Hit any key to stop autoboot:  N    <-- once more.  go to prompt quietly

You hit any key when you looked 2nd message.

I don't see that message.
