Just to complete this thread, I did figure out what my trouble was. I
erroneously thought that I didn't need the mtd0-3 dev support, but I
ended up needing it for the flash_erase (sometimes called just "erase")
command, which was what I had to run before my jffs2 errors went away.
Things seem to be working fine now :) Make sure to erase the partition
using the correct count, I had to do:
flash_erase /dev/mtd0 0 0xe0
The first parameter is the offset, the second is the number of "erase
size" blocks to erase (likely different for your case). This can be
found from your total flash size divided by the erase size
(cat /proc/mtd for this info). Gee, funny how things work when you do
it right :) I must say documentation is lacking for the mtd tools
though, I had to look at the code, sheesh, ha ha. Cheers.
