Subject: Switching ipod from rockbox to apple firmware (and back)

Switching ipod from rockbox to apple firmware (and back)

Now that I've installed Rockbox on my new iPod (30GB 5th gen, and thanks
everyone who helped me find the file I needed), I'm pretty happy with it,
except for one problem.

Since I can't (yet?) watch videos under Rockbox, I have to switch from the
Rockbox firmware back to the original Apple firmware whenever I have a
video I want to see. Switching back to Rockbox isn't too hard, except
that when I do, all my settings have reset. It's showing me files instead
of the Tag Database, I have to rebuild the Tag Cache, I have to reset the
theme, etc etc etc.

Is there any way to switch firmwares without resetting Rockbox? Am I
doing something wrong in the switch? (All I do is restart the iPod holding
down the Menu button to go to Apple, and then use Menu+Select from Apple
to reboot and get into Rockbox).

Thanks all,
