   Thank you for your explaination.

    Thanks for the "ubiformat " tool.
    Yes, the issue is go away by properly use MLC nand.
    But the write fail issue in UBI still exist! Suppose you are
properly used your Nand, when it return write fail, but can erase
successfully, UBI still group this block in good block heap. That is
wrong and dangerous.
