Hi,

I tried many guides, to build a linux based kernel to get nand img for livesuite, but didn't get to any successful guide, most of them seam to be out of date, I have compiled successfully the kernel source from https://github.com/cubieboard/linux-sunxi,
following this guide,
http://linux-sunxi.org/Linux_Kernel#Compilation

but how to pack this output to an nand img for livesuite, I have tried many guides as following but get nothing,
http://linux-sunxi.org/LiveSuit_images     ----- seam to work, but how to use this tools.
http://www.cubieforums.com/index.php?topic=2540.0     ----seam out of date, as I can't find linux-sdk-tools repository.   

Kindly any hints here.

FWIW if you go up one directory on github, i.e. https://github.com/cubieboard/, you can see all their repositories. There you'll find a  linux-sdk-card-tools repo which is, what I suppose, the renamed linux-sdk-tools repo.

I got my cubietrack only yesterday and until now am playing around with a pre-built debian image, so it will take some time until I try to roll my own nand images.

Hi guys: I spent days to install an operating system into NAND on a Cubieboard1
I still do not dare to temper around with a NAND install into my cubietruck, because I am afraid to brick
the whole thing.
I think there is an easier way than LiveSuit which is copying a working uSD card OS into NAND.
There are instructions somewhere here in the forum or on the net.

As far as I know, NAND can be installed via Linux on a PC or from a Windows machine. An understandable step by step instruction is needed her in our forum.
