The hold switch is used to start the Apple firmware. From Chapter 3.1.2
of the Rockbox Manual:

"Rockbox has a dual-boot feature. To boot into the original firmware,
shut down the device as described above. Turn on the 'hold' switch
immediately after turning the player on. Once Rockbox displays the
message 'Loading original firmware ...' you may turn the 'hold' switch
off. Rockbox will boot into the original firmware."

Are you saying that your iPod boots to the Apple firmware even if the
hold switch is off during the boot process?
