This indicates a problem with the camera or cabling.

You don't have one of these connected, right?

If the cameras were "not found", I think you knew what was going

It's most likely a cabling issue. It's quite easy for the flex cables
to become dislodged since there aren't any cable stays.

I'd recommend using a pre-built image to shave some time.

There are quite a few on O.S. Systems CI server:

This Ubuntu image also contains full camera support:

Can you clarify?

You mentioned that the SABRE SD board was able to operate with
your hardware. You might want to compare the defconfig files
between the two.  Perhaps something is missing.
