Bootstrapping Linux from NAND Flash


The process of getting an embedded system from initial power-on state to fully operational can seem complicated, especially when it involves Linux and NAND flash. Fortunately, Linux has developed a versatile set of techniques that accommodate a wide range of system configurations. This paper includes a review of the Linux boot process and describes how the Datalight bootstrap program works. It was written to demystify the process of bootstrapping Linux from  NAND, help you avoid the pitfalls, and maximize your team’s efficiency.
