I'm unable to install onto the nand on one of my cubieboards. This is the error message:

cubie@Cubian:~$ sudo ~/nandinstall/install.sh

The device apparently does not exist; did you specify it correctly?

I've never had anything installed on the nand memory before and on my other cubieboard nandinstall worked just fine.

did you get some news on this ? Sry I can't help, I didn't use this script. I did it from the cubian-nandinstall pckg ( apt-get cubian-nandinstall / sudo cubian-nandinstall ) –  Guian Mar 25 '14 at 12:57
    
I've since reinstalled on a new sdcard, but still, cubian-nandinstall (from apt) doesn't work. It doesn't boot from NAND. –  Filip Haglund Mar 25 '14 at 20:45

(I can't comment because I don't have enough reputation).

Well, What happens when you turn on the cubieboard without the microSD? Runs the android? or only shows a green bar? If only shows the green bar is likely you have a problem with the partition of the nand (don't try to do a partition if it was a hdd).

Use the next command as root since the microSD

./nand-part -f a20 /dev/nand 32768 'bootloader 20480' 'boot 512' 'rootfs 0'

You can download nand-part from here nand-part
