Title: Uninstalling bootloader on iPod (Windows)

Hi.

I thought that both installation info on On-line Manual and Wiki were exactly the same. So, I found an info that I never had read.

I read on Manual a very simple method to uninstall the bootloader with the new ipodpatcher. Just type ipodpatcher N -d. No original bootpartition.bin is required anymore.

On Wiki Installation Beta page, the only info is to type ipodpatcher N -w bootpartition.bin  The original bootpartition.bin is required. But, they not saying that as a real uninstalling info. They say in case of any problem occurs during installation, etc.

But, I suppose that both methods works to uninstall, although the second one is more complex. Is right?

The first one is how to uninstall if everything went right.

The second one restores your iPod boot partition to how it was when you started, best if something goes wrong.
