Can you run the following commands? :
dd if=/dev/sdc of=dump1.bin bs=512 count=1
dd if=/dev/sdc of=dump2.bin bs=512 count=1 skip=252
dd if=/dev/sdc of=dump3.bin bs=512 count=1 skip=257040
dd if=/dev/sdc of=dump4.bin bs=2048 count=1 skip=252
dd if=/dev/sdc of=dump5.bin bs=2048 count=1 skip=257040

and attach the resulting files (dump1.bin to dump5.bin) to this task?

here you go ;-)

dump6 (from dd if=/dev/sdc of=dump6.bin bs=1024 count=1 skip=257040)

This is definitely a 5.5G:
(from pastebin)
[ 8696.374209] sd 9:0:0:0: [sdc] 39075372 2048-byte hardware sectors (80026 MB)

Also encountered this bug, using a 5.5G, OSX RButilQT 1.2.2, and manual installation, after reformatting my ipod to FAT32 with mkfs.vfat. Autodetect failed, and RButilQT bootloader install also failed (error: “could not open ipod”). Manual bootloader installation using ipodpatcher 3.0 with 3.0 bootloader was successful, but booting resulted in the output posted above. Similar reporting error of partition MB count.

Successful installation was reached after reformatting to FAT32 using Windows iTunes and manual installation. Autodetect and RButilQT bootloader installation still failed, though.
