Rockbox Utility doesn't currently install the bootloader properly for the MR-100. It moves the existing /system/PP5020.mi4 to /system/OF.mi4 but doesn't copy the bootloader to /system/PP5020.mi4.

In other words, after attempting to install the bootloader Rockbox (and the OF) will fail to start, complaining of a missing/invalid file. After connecting via Olympus' bootloader USB mode and checking the contents of the /system/ folder I found only OF.mi4. Manually, saving the Rockbox bootloader to the /system/ directory as per the manual installation instructions then allows Rockbox to boot properly.
This task depends upon

I explicitly chose "Install the bootloader" from the Installation tab.
