This is what RedBoot's FIS is for. Build your RAM application as normal,
load it into RedBoot with the "raw" option, then tell RedBoot to write it
into the FIS. You can even have your application automatically boot if you
configure RedBoot to use a startup script.

You shouldn't normally need to modify those.
