Is there a solution to the problem stated above yet?

By the way, I also used JFFS2 on NAND flash as root filesystem in a 
telecom product. but the root filesystem infrequently becomes corrupt 
without any apparent reason. I`m considering to redesign the hardware 
and use an alternative device instead of NAND flash.

any comments on this issue will be appreciated.
