Hi Mark/Dave,

Thank you very much!!! It is now working and indeed a problem of wrong variable name. While replacing ${3254736} with ${filesize}, the u-boot also requires me to remove the space ' ' between 'cp' and '.b', otherwise it prompts "cp - usage" this kind message.

Also, u-boot work in hex, so if you did use:

GUM> cp .b a2000000 40000 3254736

it would still be wrong. Using:

GUM> cp .b a2000000 40000 31a9d0

should work properly. As Mark suggested, using

GUM> cp .b a2000000 40000 ${filesize}

would be best.
