           Summary: dfu-util should be able to initiate a nand-erase
           Product: OpenMoko
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Neo1973
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: dfu-util
        AssignedTo: werner at openmoko.org
        ReportedBy: hns at computer.org
                CC: buglog at lists.openmoko.org

It took quite long to find the "bug" when flashing a different rootfs simply failed. No error messages from 
dfu-util. Nothing. But the OpenMoko system behaved strangely.

A small note finally said that one should go into the serial interface and do a nand erase *** if the new 
rootfs is smaller than the previous one ***

Why is this not automatically recognized by dfu-util, jffs2 or uboot (or whoever is responsible for it). What 
to do if one does not have a serial interface?
