I followed the script at




I actually copy and pasted it so it was exact.  So am sorry I don’t know how to fix the issue. Can one just nuke the nand and have it fresh again?

Subject: Re: [Gumstix-users] nand flash boot :(


MLO, u-boot.bin and uImage should be sitting in the FAT partition, not the JFFS2 partition. From what you shown, you are not at the point where you need JFFS2 partition yet. So I would check to see if the MLO, u-boot.bin, and uImage are not corrupted on mtd1, mtd2

Ok my fire/tobi board wouldn’t boot, so I thought I would flash the nand again since it will boot from the msd card.  So I flash it and the following I get at the end of the process.

JFFS2 notice: (1091) jffs2_build_xattr_subsystem: complete building xattr subsys

tem, 0 of xdatum (0 unchecked, 0 orphan) and 0 of xref (0 dead, 0 orphan) found



Then when I boot the rig without the flash I get the following and it just sits there. No other output.
