If you hold the F1 key on boot (when pressing on or when plugging in the
charger), the original firmware will be booted, not the flashed rockbox version.
If you have a new rockbox ajbrec.ajz in root as well, you won't notice any
difference excepts a longer boot time and the archos splash screen.
This is a safety feature for flashed rockbox units, because you'll always
have the possibility to boot your jukebox, even if flashing a ucl file goes
