The last "released" H300 bootloader is from july, 2006!
Regarding the TODO list at the above page, a lot of things have been fixed since then.

So it would be really nice if somebody (who is able to reanimate a bricked device) would
be able to test a current SVN bootloader and create a new release.
Unfortunately it seems that only Linus is able to do this - and it seems he doesn't have
enough time or isn't in the mood to do it...
Wouldn't this be something for a developer meeting?

If you still want to try it - please report about your attemptions and results ;)
