Yes.

No, you don't double-click the Record button to start the original, you
just hold it.

The thing is that the bootloader stores a cookie in the internal RAM
when it starts, and clears it when it starts the real firmware.

However, if it detects that the cookie is already there when it boots,
it assumes that the bootloader has rebooted from a crash, and starts the
original firmware.

If you press RESET in the middle of the boot process, the player
restarts without resetting the cookie. You must of course hold ON when
you do this, otherwise the player will turn off.
