Hi,

 

I'm running Android R10.2 on an iMX53 based platform. The platform has nand flash and I am attempting to use mtd utiliities nandwrite, flash_erase etc but these particular utiities are not present in the mtd source tree. The mtd-utils came from

git://android.git.linaro.org/platform/external/mtd-utils.git

as defined in the user guide.


I have two basic questions:


Is there are particular reason why they are not included?

Where can I get them for an Android-based build? I can get them for the standard Linux build but I am having difficulty finding them for an Android build. I assumed they would be easily available.


Thanks

Bruno
