ubifs in slc nand in imx6

Hi All,

I have imx6 solo h/w with SLC nand of size 256 MB.I made ubifs filesystem and flashed it in SLC nand.

Now kernel should take filesystem from SLC nand.

I have configured the kernel for required settings and UBIFS is found but could not boot completely from that..

cat /proc/partition is not listing the mtdblock. Is this the problem??

cat /proc/mtd is listing the mtd device.

root@imx6solosabreauto:~# cat /proc/mtd

dev:    size   erasesize  name

mtd0: 00800000 00020000 "root"



I created this partition in dtsi file under gpmi node.


       partition@4 {

                        label = "root";

                        reg = <0x00020000 0x00800000>;




Let me know what i am missing for making the kernel to take UBIFS from SLC Nand.
