I tried to use "oob_64" and format the NAND Flash to use jffs2 filesystem.
The format part went well. It detected a few bad sectors.....
After the format finished, I tried to do "mount -t jffs2
/dev/mtdblock8 /nand" but I got
the following exception error message:
sh-2.05b# mount -t jffs2 /dev/mtdblock8 /nand
