The rockbox developers came up with a solution for exactly this problem.
Instead of holding left while booting, simply turn off the sansa and
insert the USB plug. It will wake up and boot into the original firmware
without doing a database refresh.
I think this is a great work-around for the currently missing USB and
charge support (I don't use micro-SD though).
