Good morning, and thank you for you replies!

There is a mirror site linked in H300 bootloader wiki page which is working
and provides some files, but all links to iRiver's firmware files are dead. I
did not try to search iRiver's site with my no-js browser.

K means Korean, right? I suppose it still has messages in English, am Iright?

OK, I'm grateful, if you can send them to me. I try to flash them, and see
what happens. I'll report the results.

Does anyone have hardware for recovering a bricked H300? I can pay for the
work, of course.

jp: you don't need to search your hard drives. I think I'll do with XavierGr's
files. Either they work or I perish. But thank you very much for offering help!
