Not sure, what is the output of these commands?

file BOOT
file embedded-update.img

The 0x00000066 is more likely to be a location on the tablet's storage device.

The busybox in your computer only runs on Intel/AMD CPUs.
There might be one on the tablet that runs on the ARM/Rockchip CPUs.
Please use only the ARM busybox otherwise it won't work on the tablet.

Right, but android-tools-mkbootimg will be going away hopefully soon
and the binary will be provided by another package. You can use
apt-file or this page to look up the new package name once that
