update:
I've flashed all the files to the correct locations etc using androidtools but when i boot the firefly theres a kernel panic that says
[ end kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(179,1)

i haven tried reflashing a couple times but I'm not sure what to try next? i had a look at the parameters.txt but im not sure what i need to change

I wrote above, the firmware is successful on eMMC, but in fact and not sewn. so I put on root sdcard or all of the loader to the root partition
sufficient to eMMC flash parameters.txt, boot.img, kernel.img
create a partition on sdcard and pour back linuxroot (dd /dev/mmcb0p1)

above script to create such a sdcard (but be careful with the choice of card, the script has made a mistake, when you cancel it)

mara, I'm having no luck getting it to work
tried androindtools and it flash with no error but hangs whole looking for root fs
tried the linux script to flash emac and it has same error on boot
also tried the sdcard script but i don't seem to be able to boot from sdcard
it appears to me that its failing to detect the root partition set in the parameters.txt file, perhaps theres is something wrong there?
