Thanks for the reply.

First question, please tell me if these sequences are correct:

In Linux:

- Read:

1.nanddump from the mtd device to a file.

2.bareboxenv -l the file dumped.


1.bareboxenv -s from source directory to a file

2.nandwrite that file to the mtd device.

Second question is: what would be the same sequences under barebox?
