Yes, this chip has only top boot sectors (8x8kByte).

I will try this.
But I have another very interresting phaenomenon. Last time I tried
another download with 2+5.5MB, which worked fine with "flashitall", but
now I splitted it into two pieces of 2MB and 5.5MB as I explained before
and downloaded it separately. Surprisingly, this works, no flash problem!
Maybe it is rather a JFFS2 images creation problem with images bigger
than, at least, 5.5MB? Weird.
Don't Fear The Penguins!
