Re: current-user lurker wants help with Mini-2440 project.

Ohh, I see. So, I would recommend that you flash a new version of
U-Boot onto the Mini2440. First start off by trying U-Boot from RAM
(following the description in "Run U-Boot without flashing it to
NAND"). Unfortunately, you will need a tool, which to me best
knowledge is only available on Linux and Windows. It's called DNW for
Windows and USBPush (Boot USB) for Linux, and is available from
http://www.friendlyarm.net/downloads. You might be able to do xmodem
transfer as well to Supervivi, but I haven't tried that myself.

If U-Boot from ram seems to work fine for you, you can follow the
instructions outlined in "Flashing U-Boot to NAND" to get it into
NAND. Alternatively, U-Boot can also be used to place U-Boot in NAND,
as described in section "Loading / Flashing the first U-Boot" at

I hope this helps you.

Best regards,
