Rooting worked, service install worked, but keep getting prompted that the storage may be corrupt. About half the time when I reboot it acts like it just reset back to factory defaults, although root and services a still present.
Update: I un-rooted via uninstall, deleted data, then factory reset and re-rooted. No issues.

If there is an internal SD card, you should probably take it out and back up the contents. It may be failing. It could be that resetting the database and deleting files freed up some space that isn't corrupted yet, allowing the device to continue working for a while.

I could be wrong, but having a copy doesn't hurt.

The scripts in jailbreak.app and services.app hard-reboot the device by simply running /sbin/reboot. It's possible doing this may corrupt the database on vfat partition if there is a write pending, because the partition is never really unmounted. I'll add running /sbin/sync beforehand in next version, together with some other small fixes (wifi power management is still shoddy...).
