[meta-freescale] How to use mfgtool 2 to boot iMX7dsabresd from NAND

I haven't flashed the NAND manually yet. I am new to Yocto Project-based image build and having some difficulties to build the image (NAND boot, UBIFS file system), I thought I would try first loading the images that comes in MfgTool.
I am using L4.1.15_1.2.0_ga-mfg-tools.tar.gz. and we would like to use it for flashing new boards

Have you tried your NAND already? I mean, have you flashed it manually? Only to make sure all the support is in place?

I would prefer to use the scripts with the board name included.
Anyway, can you, please, share the exact version of mfgtools you are using only to make sure we're in the same page?

As far as I know, only the MfgTool documentation can help on this.
Do you really need to use mfgtool?
