If just want to boot Genode without the need for secure booting, have
you tried article [1]?

The current mainline Genode toolchain doesn't support creation of
verified uBoot images. As far as I know, nobody tried to secure-boot
Genode on the USB Armory yet. Thus, I can't give you any approved
information on how to add support. I had a quick look at the tutorial:

"... The U-Boot compilation (with Verified Boot and HAB support)
requires a precompiled zImage Linux kernel image source tree path ..."

This makes me wonder whether the Verified Boot/HAB tools support kernels
other then Linux at all. For this question it might be better to ask the
imx53 community [2] / manuals [3] or at the USB Armory forum [4].
