I'll add an uninstall option to the interactive version of ipodpatcher
with the next release - which will probably be today sometime.

The N is now optional in ipodpatcher, so the correct uninstall command
is simply:

"ipodpatcher -d"

You need to turn the hold switch on between the time the bootloader
starts and the time Rockbox starts.

Alternatively, you can simply delete the config.cfg file in the .rockbox
folder when your ipod is connected to your computer.
