Ramdisk not working on Hawkboard

I am creating ram disk as in : http://processors.wiki.ti.com/index.php/Creating_a_Root_File_System_for_Linux_on_OMAP35x

I compiled the linux-omap kernel using (http://hawkboard.googlecode.com/files/linux-omapl1_ver1.tar.bz2), with the kernel parameters as described in the first link as above:
make ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=arm-none-linux-gnueabi- uImage_v2

cp arch/arm/boot/Image_v2 /tftpboot/uImage_v2

Then I did:
setenv bootargs mem=88M ip=dhcp console=ttyS0,115200n8 root=/dev/ram0 rw initrd=0xc1180000,16M ramdisk_size=16384
tftp c0000000 uImage_v2
tftp c1180000 rd-ext2.bin
bootm c0000000

It errors:
hawkboard.org > bootm c0000000          
AIS U-BootLoader is already flashed
Wrong Image Format for bootm command
ERROR: can't get kernel image!

any clues why?

This from http://elinux.org/Hawkboard works fine, though, with the default ram disk on hawkboard.org:

 make ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=arm-none-linux-gnueabi- distclean
  make ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=arm-none-linux-gnueabi- omapl138_hawkboard_defconfig

  make ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=arm-none-linux-gnueabi- uImage
