Nano Pi NEO won't boot

Azmath Moosa
I followed all the instructions given at

for building custom Debian.  Unfortunately, the SD card won't boot.  When I
insert the SD card and boot the device, it boots the Kernel properly but
doesn't mount the rootfs and doesn't show login prompt.  I have done this a
couple of times thinking I might have messed up something but to no avail.

This is the serial output (last few lines)
[    3.701347] EXT4-fs (mmcblk0p2): mounted filesystem with ordered data
mode. Opts: (null)
[    3.714240] VFS: Mounted root (ext4 filesystem) on device 179:2.

The serial output of the stock image provided by FA looks like so.

   [    3.740859] VFS: Mounted root (ext4 filesystem) on device 179:2.

It seems the rootfs is not being mounted properly.  Can anyone please guide
me with this?

Also I have paritioned the SD card as follows
:--Free Space 25MB--:--Boot--uImage,script.bin--:--RootFS--contents of

Please help me out.
