Using a single rootfs on the emmc instead of initramfs IFC65

Questions and discussions related to Inforce 6501™ development kit

Hi all, we have been working with the IFC6501 and we have some questions.

Now, we are able to rebuild the Android code and install the partitions on the board. We know that Android uses initramfs, but we want to modify this boot stage. We are trying to mount a single rootfs to the emmc, in the system partition for example. This rootfs contains the system, userdata and ramdisk.img information.

We passed the correct bootargs to the Kernel, and it is capable to mount this new rootfs correctly. But when the Kernel tries to execute the init, shows the typical error " No init found. Try passing init=bootarg." So the question is if there are any known limitation for using the filesystem in the emmc instead of ramfs?

Moreover, I recall that you mentioned something about preparing a Linaro release version instead of Android, do you have any news about it?
