    I'm developing a Linux based product with the i.MX31 SOM. I'm storing the kernel in a LOLO YAFFS partition. At some point I'd like the capability of doing in-field upgrades of the kernel in that YAFFS partition.

    The discussion in http://tdg.logicpd.com/viewtopic.php?f=29&t=1108 pretty much covers my problem. A quick summary of that thread is that LOLO uses an ancient version of YAFFS with some LogicPD patches that Linux doesn't recognize.

    Last time around there really wasn't any solution. So my question basically is, does anyone have a way create and delete from Linux in the NAND flash in such a way as to allow LOLO to use those files?
