2008-04-29 05:43:42     flash driver for non CFI flash

kanal kannan (INDIA)

Message: 55210    hi to all,

 

we have made our own board with the BF561 and the flash of M-systems MD8832-D1G-V18-X-P (128MB). The flash is non compatible to CFI and the data sheet provided is not fair. I have taken a look in the bfloader files but could come to a conclusion what are the changes to be made in the source files for the new flash. As i'm new to drivers finding it difficult.

 

Note : the datasheet of MD8832 doesn't contain any details regarding command definitions

Did anyone overcome these type of problems.

 

Any help would be appreciated

 

 

regards,

kanal.

Have a look at one of the other boards that does not use a cfi driver.

Message: 55246    i dont know what this 'bfloader' thing is you refer to, but the kernel does not have a driver for that flash which means you need to write your own.

 

a saner solution would be to just go buy a CFI conformant flash
