I keep getting these different images mixed up myself and i've
temporarily bricked at least one board by programming the .img instead
of the .bin.

redboot.bin  - RAW binary image suitable for JTAG tools
redboot.elf  - ELF image straight from the compiler
redboot.img  - Stripped ELF image
redboot.srec - Image in ASCII SREC format.
