[maemo-developers] [maemo-developers] flasher not flashing rootfs?

My testing shows that a jffs2 file of *exactly* 8 Mb (8,388,608 bytes)
will NOT flash.  Anything bigger than that (the next largest jffs2
image is 8,389,752 bytes) WILL flash.

Note that this is the jffs2 image as produced by tar2jffs, including
the sumtool step - i.e.  this is the size of the file transferred to
the 770, not the output of mkfs.jffs2.

Thanks for the tips, I'm back to work now :-)
