    Unfortunately, USB Drive crashes immediately when I tap on it.

    Any clues? I'm on 3.1.3 with Spirit JB.

    Did this a few days ago and built a multi-boot rescue USB stick on my iPhone. Booting ramdisks, both linux and windows works perfectly, however when booting a linux live cd sometimes the ehci driver module seems to have problems with the iPhone on startup resulting in numerous I/O errors.
