Including Initramfs in itb file = no console output from kernel

Hi Guys,

I am new to the forum and starting my embedded journey.
Glad to be here among you all!

A brief question:
I have a kernel built for my chipset, and if I load it and the dtb using a FIT tree - I see console output and it goes into kernel panic due to VFS unsync.

But.. if I include any sort of initramfs inside the .its and load the itb images, the Kernel crashes at jumping to monitor without any console output.

I assume if the initramfs is bad, the kernel should tell me. Instead its a silent reboot.
Does anyone have any ideas?

While I have not managed to boot an ITB image including the initramfs separately in the FIT tree, I am able to connect the file system properly when I compile the initramfs into the kernel.
