You can check this topic, Mike's reply will help you, he had created ubi volumes with ubimkvol command.

http://imxcommunity.org/group/imx28andimx28evk/forum/topics/imx28-nand-boot-no-init-found

 

create a ubi volume as <volume_name> that has size of 50MiB

$ ubimkvol  /dev/ubi0 -N <volume_name> -s 50MiB

 

-m means rest of space

$ ubimkvol  /dev/ubi0 -N <volume_name> -m

The following discussion contains a bunch of info on setting up NAND. It helped me getting NAND with UBIFS running.

Thanks for the reply Sinan, Should they be configured while kernel compiling or should we follow any other procedure for that.

Please help me in creating those volumes. As i am stuck at a point.

In the past, I dealt with mtd partitioning and according to me it is very hard. Instead of this, ubi volumes may help you ( If you use ubifs ).
