Hi Alex:

First of all, thank you for your answer. You wrote:

	I tried it in two ways, and in both of them
I got the same result:

	1.- By flashing "jffs2.image" directly to
	    its location address.

	2.- cp jffs2.image /dev/mtd0

and then mounting it into the system.

	No, the directory is not empty.
