Hello,
We have a new A-64 board and working successfully with sd card image. We would like to boot the board from on board NAND without SD card. Can anyone please share the procedure?

Thanks

Hey,

The A64 board has eMMC, not NAND.

Try to transfer the Linux to the eMMC with the eMMC.sh script. Try to execute the eMMC install script with:

sudo ./emmc.sh

Let us know how it goes.

Best regards,

Can NAND be assembled to existing place? will it work? 

FalloutST

acording to this scheme
installed NAND chip but getting u-boot message Card did not respond to voltage select
Am I did some thing wrong or some special chip only can be assembled

NAND memories have NO support in mainline Linux. It is not recommended to use NAND with A64-OLinuXino. If you wish to add flash memory, use eMMC.

It is not recomended due to notes declared on scheme? If so, I'd like to proceed.
Any way, may be you can point on way to enable that future...

You would need to get Linux mainline to add support - very very unlikely - or do it yourself.

It is not implemented due to drivers being closed source and mainline Linux will not include binary blobs. Noone did any work about NAND in mainline. If you want to use NAND you have to use older sunxi images (kernel 3.4.xxx)!

With mainline kernel images - forget about getting NAND working.
