    To all of you 8GB owners: I need you to answer a simple question for me... Have any of you gotten BSD root: Major 0, Minor 2 (or something like that) repeating when trying to jailbreak using ZiPhone? This does NOT include those having trouble jailbreaking, just who have seen the BSD root error.

    P.S. It's not that I'm having trouble with an 8GB touch that I own - Mine is 16GB. I just would like this info for statistical information, and to make sure that the problem is indeed with having 2 chips instead of one.

    I used the included GUI and it worked fine.
    What do you think the cause of the BSD root error are, AriX?
    I'm thinking that it might be something with the media partition, because of course, it's really big, and the private partition never changes..
    Or maybe access to one of the disks isn't given, because the capacity is higher..
    I know it edits your system environment variables and then executes the changes, but maybe since they are 2x8 or 16, access to one or both chips isn't given at boot time?

    well it says md0(which stands for memdisk0) and major 2 (master ssd - a ssd) minor 0 (slave ssd - second ssd) when i say ssd i mean memory chip. Therefore it was only made for one chip.

    Arix, I am thinking that somehow apple is running the two memory chips in the 16gb through something like a software raid....spanned set or something to make them appear as one big lump of storage in itunes. Maybe this is the problem? The address is wrong for 16gb models which we pretty much already figured out...but what is the right address? Maybe there are two because of the software raid? Well either way I would say that if any 8GB owners have gotten the BSD root error it would have said BSD Major 1 not 2. Just a guess that the 2 stands for the number of NAND flash memory chips.
