Press the 'Menu' button and the 'Select' button simultaneously. Press the 'Menu' button on the upper portion of this button, and press the white circular 'Select' button at the same time, and hold for approximately 10 seconds. Here's a picture of where the buttons are located: http://homepage.mac.com/uomoragno/iblog/C1367545306/E1454925836/Media/iPod_reset.gif

From Chapter 3 of the Rockbox Manual, which you are expected to have read before posting here:

(http://download.rockbox.org/manual/rockbox-ipodvideo/rockbox_interface/images/ipodvideo-front.png)

As you can see, the center button is known in Rockbox as the "Select" button.  Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons simultaneously to reset your ipod.
