That figures :-)

I will give it a try (hopefully) next week. Any hints?

You ran mkfs.jffs2 on a little-endian machine and tried to mount the 
resulting filesystem on a big-endian machine. You have two options:

 1. Don't do that.
 2. Give me a patch for mkfs.jffs2 which does byteswapping when asked.
