How to install image to eMMC from Linux

Hi, the question is simple. How to install u-boot, linux kernel and filesystem to eMMC via microUSB from Linux. I know it is possible from Windows using MFG Tools, but is there really no possibility to do it from Linux?

If I attach the microUSB to Linux and call 'lsusb' command, I can see that device is recognized:

     15a2:004e Freescale Semiconductor, Inc.

 

Should it be attached as some kind a block device and install images using 'dd'? Or is it some other kind of serial device with specific protocol for which there is no application available in Linux.

 

We just simply want to start manufacturing our product and installing images via Linux seems like a good solution, because now we need a separate Windows machine and someone sitting there and installing images for 1000 pieces.
