will it boot jffs2 on flash ?

--kd8ikt

Install Qi on you NAND flash. You can still boot whatever distro you've got on internal flash using the NOR bootloader.from here So I think it should still be able to do jffs2, but I'm not sure. Bram

dmesg output

With `uname -a` = "Linux om-gta02 2.6.24 #1 PREEMPT Tue Dec 2 15:02:59 CST 2008 armv4tl unknown", dmesg outputs s3c2440 on GTA02 Revision: 0360. qi-s3c2442-master works fine on it.

post-init booting stuff is faster?

How many times was this experiment done, by how many different people? For empirical stuff, more data is invariably better. Sm 22:04, 7 January 2009 (UTC)
