But while there are some tips in changing the uEnv.txt, to enable the boot from 2nd mmc partition. following is the configuration file:

[root@alarm mnt]# cat uEnv.txt

#u-boot eMMC specific overrides; Angstrom Distribution (BeagleBone Black) 2013-06-20
loadzimage=load mmc ${mmcdev}:${mmcpart} ${loadaddr} ${kernel_file}
loadinitrd=load mmc ${mmcdev}:${mmcpart} 0x81000000 ${initrd_file}; setenv initrd_size ${filesize}
loadfdt=load mmc ${mmcdev}:${mmcpart} ${fdtaddr} /dtbs/${fdtfile}
# If you want to boot from usb
#mmcroot=/dev/sda1 ro
# If you want to boot from SD card
mmcroot=/dev/mmcblk0p2 ro
mmcrootfstype=ext4 rootwait fixrtc

Now reboot and then you could see the BBB runs into the ArchLinux.
