Haven't tried it, but here looks like a good place to start.
One would assume you'd need to have the MTD and UBI options selected in the kernel, or the appropriate modules loaded.

Hi ,
yeah i saw that link. I need to know how i should be able to compile my file systems folders using the mkfs.ubifs utility. and with options in the kernel enabled how to load the image in the nandflash through the kernel ? has anybody tried it? It better to take a BACKUP and practice these things before doing any this.
