I think the lcd glitches and lack of recording is already enough for
keeping it in unstable. Then we also have poor battery life compared to
the OF (IIRC ~15h vs (rated, I think nobody really tested it) 24h on the
Fuze).
http://www.rockbox.org/tracker/task/10603 fixes the glitches, but the
hold button doesn't work with it.

I think USB doesn't matter to much in that regard, as it's usually a
very tough job to get it working (especially without datasheets). Wasn't
someone working on it?

I don't think the difference between unstable and stable should be that
little. http://www.rockbox.org/wiki/TargetClassifications isn't very
clear about stable, but IMO stable should have a complete feature set
(minus USB) and no known bugs.

I did that already. Sorry that I forgot to announce it. The bootloader
is 1.0 on the download server. The linux version should of mkamsboot
should be 1.1. The bootloader branch has the RC bits removed.
