HI All,
I am newbie here, I have a A33 tablet came with android I am trying to
get linux on it.
I could boot linux from SD card , now I want to boot from NAND but when
i look for /dev/nand it is not available instead i get (result of lsblk)

/dev/nanda
/dev/nandb
/dev/nandc
/dev/nandd
/dev/nande
/dev/nandf
/dev/nandh
/dev/mmcblk0
|
->/dev/mmcblk0p1
-> /dev/mmcblk0p1


so I tried copying uboot to /dev/nanda with vfat and root fs to
/dev/nandc with ext4 but didnot work.

is this due to /dev/nand missing, because of this BROM is not able to get
proper MBR?

please give suggesions.

Thansk & Regards
Pavan

from wiki page : http://linux-sunxi.org/Installing_to_NAND
(Note that "/dev/nand" is a linux-sunxi feature, and as such you will need
to be running a linux-sunxi kernel to make use of it. Using other kernels
(like the one on the stock Android image of your device) won't be of use.)
linux-sunxi legacy kernel doesnt support A33 , you are using allwinner
linux 3.4 kernel (lichee)
