-> seek & skip is wrong with u-boot.imx you should use with
u-boot-fslc : you only need seek=1

--> I think you should take u-boot.imx and not u-boot.bin

a far simpler way if you have a SD slot on your Linux host should be :
dd if=u-boot.imx of=/dev/mmcblk0 conv=notrunc seek=2 bs=512
replace mmcblk0 by the right device (and take care to not erase your
hard drive ;-)
