valery,

From inside stock OS. Install,

U-boot: uboot.2017.07-tld-1.goflexhome.bodhi.tar

https://forum.doozan.com/read.php?3,12381

Rootfs: Debian-4.12.1-kirkwood-tld-1-rootfs-bodhi.tar.bz2

https://forum.doozan.com/read.php?2,12096

Read these 2 posts and see if you're comfortable with running those installation procedures.

ethaddr this is MAC of my box, but where can i find the correct value of the mtdparts?

Also I did not quite understand - In which case the box boot from SATA, and in which with the NAND?
This is my case?
I need it?:

valery,

Usually you would see it from stock OS when logged in. But for this GoFlexHome, you don't need to set it, because the default in the env image is already correct for this box.

It will not boot from NAND any more after you install new u-boot. You will boot from either the USB or SATA with the new rootfs Debian-4..12.1-kirkwood-tld-1-rootfs-bodhi.tar.bz2 on it.

This is optional. This is good to have, but in a normal case it is likely not needed.

BTW, do you have serial console connected? It would be great to have it in case you need to trouble shoot booting problem.
