The current H100 bootloader is v6, the current H300 bootloader is v5; see
http://www.rockbox.org/twiki/bin/view/Main/IriverBoot.

For H300, SVN contains several improvements to the bootloader (bootloader
USB mode working properly, power on by remote, charging screen), but there
are also some reported issues (hard disk clicking, possible boot failure).
I should add that I'm running an SVN bootloader from a few months back and I
don't see either of these problems. I should also add that building and
flashing your own Iriver bootloader carries a significant risk of
permanently bricking your player.

Hopefully someone with the appropriate hardware, for example LinusN ;-),
will do some more testing of the SVN code and then we'll have an H300 v6.
