[Arm-netbook] Flashing the NAND

Hi all,
I have an A20 based eoma68 card.
I have now an image based on the Mer distribution that can boot and runs fine 
from the microSD card (following http://rhombus-tech.net/allwinner/a20/boot/ 
and http://www.gplsquared.com/eoma_boot/eoma_boot.html)

but the next necessary step is to flash a booting image to the internal NAND 
of the eoma68 (and in the end make an image that can be installed by default 
from the factory).

I understand there have been some progress (I see drivers for it in 
https://github.com/linux-sunxi/linux-sunxi/tree/wip/linux-sunxi-3.4/cubieboard/drivers/block/sunxi_nand but nothing that looks like it 
shows up in /dev?)

I was wondering what is the procedure for it? did anybody managed to obtain a 
booting linux distribution from the nand? (seems a proprietary windows 
application is needed for the flashing?)
