The imx-usb-loader tool generally works here. I don't have a DA9053
based Loco here. It may be that there is some bug in the code preventing
this board to run.

I just did a quick:

git checkout master
make imx_v7_defconfig
cat images/barebox-freescale-imx53-loco.img > /dev/sde

The resulting SD card works here.

Could you try booting from SD card? Does that work?
