No JFFS yet but that shouldn't be too hard, I haven't tried it yet. With my modified pbltool with
scripting support I can upload all I need in about 3 1/2 min.

That would be great. I am happy with my modifications to u-boot and pbltool but both need a bit of
a clean up. I could create a patch for u-boot and the kernel.
For pbltool I would prefer to just send you the source file as my modifcations have been
Also I could put my buildroot & busybox configs on there so everyone can build their own rootfs,
but I will also make all my images available.

All this probably will not happen till the weekend as I want a little longer working on the USB

B.T.W I now have a (slightly broken) shell.
