Current status of H300 bootloader?

(1/2) > >>

Mr_Rabid_Teddybear:
I have a H340 with a functional v5 bootloader. The boot USB mode is a bit volatile but the device boots OK. I see that the v6 bootloader release doesn't seem to be around the corner anytime soon and reading some other posts it seems that some (several?) people have got a bit in a stick trying to use bootloader freshly compiled from SVN. So I should probably just stick with the bootloader I have on already I guess? But I just wondered if someone have some info on surrounding matters as of primo 2011...?

Llorean:
Is there actually a problem with the V5 bootloader that needs fixing? Has a bug report been filed?

AlexP:
H300 bootloaders in SVN are broken, DO NOT USE ONE as you will brick your player. You will not be able to recover it without specialist hardware.

galapogos01:
I found via trial and error that you can recover a SVN/GIT bricked H300.  To recover it, I hard-reset the device with HOLD enabled and a DC charger plugged in (this was found via trial and error in a desperate attempt to bring it back to life).

There are a few feature requests for the H300 (inc auto-boot & charge w/ USB input) that would be nice to have.  There are several patches around for similar functions but they can't be used due to no source for a working bootloader.

Cheers,
Jason

That may have worked for you in one specific case, but it's not a general way to recover.
