Title: Booting A10 from NAND
Post by: didelatorre on May 27, 2015, 05:04:13 AM
I just purchased an A10-OLinuXino-Lime and built the kernel according to instructions from https://eewiki.net/display/linuxonarm/A10-OLinuXino-LIME#A10-OLinuXino-LIME-ARMCrossCompiler:GCC and booted from the sd card just fine.  According to the aforementioned site the Kernel came from https://github.com/RobertCNelson/armv7-multiplatform version 4.0.4. 

My question is how easy is it to make this chip (i.e.,A10) boot from nand, http://linux-sunxi.org/Installing_to_NAND makes it sound pretty simple although will these instructions work for the kernel that I just mentioned? As anyone here attempted to boot the A10 from nand flash, I saw a lot of posts from other forums indicating that developers are having a real hard time booting from NAND.  These posts were from a year ago so I'm hoping that maybe with time things got easier.  Comments would be greatly appreciated, thanks for the future responses.
