Guys, I need your help.

I have a C31K which has been working fine up until now.

I've flashed it about 5-6 times with different distros. I've been using pdaXrom 1.1.1 beta3.

Yesterday I gave beta4 a shot - this one uses a new bootloader, so I had to do some things from a recovery console first.

Whenever I erase the nand (flash_eraseall /dev/mtd5) I get 2 errors - it seems there are 2 bad blocks on my NAND chip! :-(

Yesterday, when I went into the diagnostics menu (D+M) and did a 'NAND Flash Erase' I got 1 error. Today I got two. What's happening? Is there anything I can do to repair these bad blocks? sad.gif

I really hope I don't have to ship it to Japan... sad.gif

Thanks in advance!
