NAND and Partition Setup

The default MMB Reference Image is designed to use an A | B partition scheme, meaning there will always be a valid working copy on board to fail back to in case of failure. The Root File System (including libraries, and language run times) is on a separate partition from Customer Applications. Because of this, you can upgrade your application, the Root File System, or both. You can choose whether to use an MMB-provided Root File System with your Application or develop both pieces to meet your own requirements.

On request, this layout can be changed to support your needs. Alternatively, you can make this change on your own by editing the sources.
