from a file o something else in nand) wasn't implemented in the main Qi
instead of forking it.

Interesting. Care to tell more about your setup?
Which distributions are yu multibooting? Android, SHR, QtMoko, Hackable?
One in NAND and three or four on a sd card?
If you decide to switch sd card, do you hve to update uboot settings?
