If the bianry is all you have then the answer is no, it cannot be done.

If you knoiw exactly what you're doing  you  can  modify  the  U-Boot
source  code  to  behave  like  you  want  - but then you have to ask
yourself _why_ you would want to do that.

My $ 0.02: Install U-Boot. Forget the other bootloader.
