    Still confused. If you have empty and erased flash, then you program it
    with all 0xFFs, you should be able to read it with no errors. If this is
    not the case for you, you should fix the driver. UBIFS cannot help in
    this case - we consider it as "broken flash driver" case.

    I have not read your e-mail carefully because of limited amount of time,
    but with quick reading I became confused - too much information :-)
