The latest U-Boot for all Boards is 1.1.1, you can find it at Hyperions download site.
1.1.4 is beta software and was never released by Hyperion - one of the betatesters must have installed it on your board.
There are no known problems with it, but it can boot from a new sata controller (sii3114 ? ).
Just leave it there.

It was never released. Due to issues already mentioned and was abandoned.

So, does this mean it's possible to replace the uboot output with an image like the x1000 have?
And does this apply to only the A1's or the sam series aswell?

It was only the AmigaOnes. The version in question was generated in 2007, so is six years old. Since the binary was not released, you can't flash a chip with it. There really is no advantage to it except for the ability to boot sii311x devices, but even that was at the expense of something else (I've forgotten now).
cheers

I can boot from 311x devices, I tested both 3112 and 3114, do you mean uboot 1.1.1 canot boot from a 311x device? always in amigaone enviroment of course

U-Boot 1.1.1 can boot from sii3112 but IIRC not sii3114. I guess sii3114 is what was added.
