This unfortunately is not that easy -- the code deciding what to boot on
USB in the boot loader is inserted by mkamsboot and as such integrated in
mkamsboot / Rockbox Utility. This is a dependency I don't like at all (and
I mentioned that back when we had the support questions when the boot
target was changed) but as of now that is how things are. Maybe our boot
loader should have a header indicating what to boot and mkamsboot including
/ being able to adjust the boot target depending on that.

Oh, and afaik mkimxboot does the same thing ...
