the NAND flavor of LIME2 should work identical to the non-NAND flavor -
i.e. using same bootloader and no need for customizations (those NAND
chips on the board are simply ignored¹).

If you want to check that your board is working at all, here are a few
options (replace /dev/sdX with the path to your sdcard on you PC):
cp firmware.A20-OLinuXino-Lime2.img /dev/sdX
Above should output U-boot info on serial port. It will fail to boot
(contains only U-boot and /boot partition) but is quick to download.
cp core-lime2-buster-1.0b13.img /dev/sdX
Above should output U-boot info on HDMI, and succeed to boot.
¹ Mainline U-boot cannot (yet) access NAND chips on A20-based boards.
