Hmm, that's what (write seek=8 blocks) I did in my test when writing the
U-boot onto a micrSD card with this image
$ sudo dd if=/tmp/root/usr/share/uboot/Cubietruck/u-boot-sunxi-with-spl.bin
of=/dev/mmcblk0 bs=1024 seek=8 conv=fsync,notrunc
317+1 records in
317+1 records out
325440 bytes (325 kB) copied, 0.455528 s, 714 kB/s
Wonder why you don't see disk activity. . .
Last month when I tried Cubietruck with F21, I was able to successfuly
boot F21 via micrSD card after some fiddling around. My notes here 
(based on the above URL you mention).
Went through this, not sure first step is useful as you're writing
over the partition table in step2. Also a typo /dev/mmcblkp1 should
be /dev/mmcblk0p1 same for /dev/mmcblkp3 I think
Still no luck, on power with the new SIM as given only the red power LED
light up. If I put the old F19 SDcard in, Power led goes up, then Green LED2
then kernel boot on the video output, up to FS corruption errors and
if I copy the first 2000 blocks of the F19 SIM onto the new one and
fix back the partition table to the original I get the second LED, the
green one to light, but it still doesn't give any boot sign ... weird.
BTW old SDcard and new one are the same brand and size
