You don't need to use NAND at all - you can put everything onto the uSD 

It would be possible to change the NAND partitioning as you described 
but I don't think it would be worth the effort. If you really want to do 
it, start by looking at the "dynpart" u-boot command and the "mtdparts" 
environment variable that it generates. Remember that you can't change 
the configuration of the NOR u-boot, and also remember that there is a 
"factory" partition between the splash and the rootfs.
