Please Clarify

One of the installation steps for the Ipod and Rockbox says as follows:

"To install (or upgrade) Rockbox you need to attach your iPod to your PC
via USB, ensure that iTunes is set up to allow you to access your ipod
as a disk,
and then unzip to the top-level (root) folder on your iPod."

Being a blind guy, I didn't install Itunes, but instead attached the USB
cable to the Ipod and went into disk mode. This allowed the computer to
see the Ipod as a disk drive and also then allowed me to use Winzip to
unzip the Rockbox software to the Ipod's main folder. Did I cause a
problem by doing it this way? In other words, is this ok or is Itunes
required to make it unzip properly as implied by the instructions.

Thanks for answering.
