You need to be a little bit more specific. Which u-boot is is installed on GFHome? what are the u-boot envs?

Here is the summary:

- Install tftp server on another Linux box to use as the tftp server.
- Create /tftproot folder on tftp server.
- Copy the kernel files (uImage, uInitrd, DTB) to /tftproot

- Set some GFHome u-boot envs to load from tftp server and load them like this
setenv ipaddr 192.168.0.xxx
setenv serverip 192.168.0.yyy
tftp 0x800000 uImage
tftp 0x1100000 uInitrd
tftp 0x1c00000 kirkwood-goflexhome.dtb

- Then boot
bootm 0x800000  0x1100000  0x1c00000

Depending your current u-boot envs, more might need to be adjusted.

Is there any way of using PXE?
