No it doesn't require jffs/ubifs support.
The "identity-ext2"(mtd5, dfu-util calls it "factory") NAND partition
contains ext2 fs.
So on linux runing from NAND
echo "/dev/mtdblock5 /boot ext2 defaults" > /etc/fstab
Navigate to /boot, edit append-GTA02...
Natural way for people used to PC bootloader like grub.
