I need to use mkfs.jffs2 command on Mac OS X. On Linux, the command is installed with mtd-tools package, but I can't find it from homebrew.

I tried to build from the source, but I have numerous compilation errors including some linux headers, so I didn't try further.

I also found http://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/Mac_OS_X#mkfs.jffs2, but the link is gone.

I installed e2fsprogs with brew install e2fsprogs from How to erase and reformat SD card to ext3 on my macbook to prepare it for my raspberry pi, but it installs only mkfs.extX commands.

Why there seems to be no mkfs.jffs2 on Mac OS X? Is there any equivalence on Mac OS X?

  • You have asked the same question (now deleted) on StackOverflow a few months ago without getting any answer, so it might just be that no implementation of jffs2 for recent OS X exists.

  • @patrix: That's my understanding. I just wanted to know if there are possible alternatives.
