RE: devboard_82 flash utility



Hi Jagoub,

I am using the same release. It seems that there are three options:
flash, flash_all, and flash_dev and I am trying to understand exactly
what each does. The only option that seems to rewrite the JFFS along
with Linux is Flash_dev. Is this correct?

Thanks,

Phil Sutter
