No, it doesn't seem to be correct.
But it's an MLC flash, so you'll most probably need to apply this patch
to nandbiterrs testsuite:

http://code.bulix.org/f69wuu-87021

This patch is flashing the block between each bitflip insertion to
avoid multiple write without erasure (which, AFAIK, is not supported
by MLC flashes).

Can you also try to write zeros to a NAND page and then dump it in
raw mode (and provide me with the resulted /tmp/dump file or an
hexdump output of this file) ?

flash_erase /dev/mtdX 0 1
dd if=/dev/zero of=/tmp/zero bs=8k count=1
nandwrite /dev/mtdX /tmp/zero
nanddump -n -o -l 8192 -f /tmp/dump /dev/mtdX

Thanks,

Boris
