Thanks for that. I installed the new H10.mi4 as well as H10_20GC.mi4 into the System directory, but now rockbox hangs at the ROCKbox splash screen. with "Loading..." but it never completes loading. I believe that I originally had H10_20GC.mi4 in there, but I had the same problem, so I added the H10.mi4. Did I miss a step?

I'd guess an old bootloader too. It's probably loading the old style
rockbox.h10 file instead of the newer rockbox.mi4. Delete the
rockbox.h10 file from both the root directory and from inside the
.rockbox directory if it's there too. You should still have a
rockbox.mi4 file inside the rockbox directory. If the bootloader
complains about not being able to find rockbox.h10 the next time you
power on, then you need to download an up-to-date bootloader from
and put it in your System directory, replacing the old bootloader that's there.
