Mounting the jffs file as described did not work for me. Instead I did the following:

mknod /dev/mtdblock0 b 31 0 
losetup /dev/loop0 <rootfs.jffs2 file> 
echo "/dev/loop0" > /sys/module/block2mtd/parameters/block2mtd 
mount -t jffs2 /dev/mtdblock0 <mountpoint> 

This seemed to work out alright.

I had pretty good luck with the procedure on the Qtopia on FreeRunner page using KnoppMyth 5.5 for my linux. Had to su but few problems. The only part I didn't figure out was the -C switch in the tar command. Failed every time. Worked around it.

A problem I had was with "Installing Kernel" instructions : instead of putting uImage.bin on the first partition in /boot folder, I had to put it directly in / (without that I couldn't boot). If someone else can reproduce the problem, I will edit the article.

Same here I have to put uImage directly to / (not to /boot)
