I have a sandisk 8gb card, and it works just fine. I seem to recall reading somewhere that 8gb was the biggest a FR could handle? or was it that 8gb is the biggest that is known to work? what means fine exactly? - no bootsector corruption? - no sudden data corruption? - lost card on resume?

1 4gb FAT partition with the uImage.bin (one for each other partition) why is that? 4gb just to host the kernels is ... waste. But I have now more partitions (and these 2 ext3 ones are logical ones now, and recognized as mmcblk0p5 and mmcblk0p6 instead of mmcblk0p2 and mmcblk0p3 before

I could recover the data by creating the same paritioning and then re-downloading the kernel in the first partition (one of teh post suggested that the bug actually eats up a sector from the first partition as wellI didn't check and downloading the kernel was pretty easy). --Vikas On Wed,

in case you loose it again, do dd if=boot.backup of=/dev/mmcblk0 that's on your host! i don't know, if that works from fr, though. I can confirm this works for the bootsector corruption, but after seriously struggling with unreadable SDHC cards under Ubuntu _AND_ the FR I finally figured
