Check with the marketing people, it should be okay IMHO.

NGW100 ships with a preprogrammed U-Boot, so you do not need a JTAGICE
mkII, I seldom use my JTAG tool.

If you are unable to upgrade U-Boot by using the different tools[1] then
you can either use a binary U-Boot[2] or a binary FlashUpgrade[1][3].
For U-Boots v1.3.x and later you can self program the bootloader.
