 $ od -t x1 jffs2.img | head -1
0000000 85 19 02 e0 44 00 00 00 1d fb f7 98 01 00 00 00

That's a little-endian image. It ain't gonna work on a Dragonball.

Did it not say 
"Magic bitmask is backwards at offset 0x00000000. Wrong endian filesystem?"?

Make sure you use the '--bigendian' option to mkfs.jffs2.
