You don't need scratchbox, any linux distribution will do. Follow this 
guide to unpack and recreate initfs  by Rodrigo Vivi 
http://labs.vivi.eng.br/blog/?p=29 but get initfs_flasher.tgz from 
http://fanoush.wz.cz/maemo/#initfs, extract it and copy bootmenu.sh and 
extract initfs.osso-RX-44.2007-49.tgz and dropbear and/or utelnetd with 
same version to root of your extracted initfs. Then recreate it via 
mkfs.jffs2 and flash to your device. You may also remove files listed in 
to_remove.lst if final image is over 2MB. Good luck :-)
