FS#6632 - Caveat re: new bootloader / ipodpatcher

This may apply to other iPods as well; I've only observed it firsthand on the 4G, though.
The manual advises people to use the new bootloader and the new ipodpatcher, without any notes about the possible (non permanent) loss of access to the Apple firmware
The wiki correctly states (at http://www.rockbox.org/twiki/bin/view/Main/IpodInstallationBeta)
"NOTE: These instructions are known to have problems with the 1st and 2nd Generation Mini and 4G (Greyscale) ipods - Rockbox loads correctly, but the original Apple firmware will not start. If you have one of these ipods, you should continue using the old installation instructions linked to from the IpodPort page. "
