I think it's just a case of using the patched firmware and not having the
.rockbox folder setup.

Taken from the iriver FAQ:-
If you want to completely remove Rockbox for some reason, simply delete the
rockbox.iriver file and .rockbox directory from your player. This way, the
bootloader will automatically boot the iriver firmware. However, it is a good
idea to keep the Rockbox bootloader, even if you are not using Rockbox. Unlike
the iriver firmware, the Rockbox bootloader allows you to boot into USB mode
even if the hard drive is corrupted. (The iriver firmware, on the hand, will
not enter USB mode until it has successfully read the hard drive.) Thus, the
Rockbox bootloader provides the possibility to rescue a broken file system or
hard drive in situations that would render your player unbootable without it.
If you really need to remove the bootloader completely (say, if you had to
return your iriver for warranty repair), just reflash with a clean firmware
from iriver.
