First thing is I most likely need to pass the correct command line which I haven't messed with much, second is that I probably need to pass dt.img as well. I'm using a new version of kexec-tools with dtb support but was unable to use --dtb dt.img (had a buffer overflow error, may need to increase a limit somewhere).

How's everything with the project??
Thanks!!!!

The issue is that I have the hardboot patches applied and the kexec-tools for hardboot/devicetree as well but after it does successfully redirect execution to the new kernel it seems to lock up after this. I'm stumped at this point as it is virtually impossible to debug without some form of RAM console or serial console. The devs who have been porting module-based kexec for VZW and ATT variants appeared to run into the same issue. I've been following their threads for insight into what's happening. Hopefully we can figure it out and then all kexec methods will work.
