1 - since you really did nt delete all of rockbox (you shoud reinstall the whole thing) this will take of the system looking for it.
2 - you will have a dual boot up and a choice of which one u wish
Key Action

Power Start Rockbox
Long Power Shutdown Rockbox
On shutdown, Rockbox automatically saves its settings.

Rockbox has a dual-boot feature. To boot into the original firmware, press and hold the Left button while turning on the player.

You can only have music on the microSD card; no pictures and no videos. The music tracks need to be in a folder titled "MUSIC".

30g ipod rockbox wont sync with itunes after doom install

If you look at the Rockbox documentation, there is a way to reboot your iPod into the original iPod firmware and use the original interface as well as having the ability to boot into the Rockbox firmware.
The Rockbox firmware is great if you want more options for transfer and skins and so on, but it is not as easy to use as the stock iPod interface.
You can also refer to the documentation that will show how to remove Rockbox and go back to the original Apple software. I ran Rockbox for a while but it was more or a pain in the **** than I cared to deal with so I uninstalled it.
Worst case is you can do a full restore in iTunes that will restore the iPod to factory, but it will wipe the music you have loaded. Hope you have a backup.

Hope this helps.

Camera taking wierd pictures

look for the reset to factory settings for your casio. i could also be the settings have been changed so more light is coming in the camera which explains your bright pictures. but the lines across ALL the pictures warn something of a CCD/Cmos sensor problem.

when it "freezes" it's usually just taken a picture (easy to accidentally press the shutter) and is showing it to you--press save (left function) or erase (right) then is ready for another--can tell because the picture is moving as you move the phone

Some of that space is reserved for the firmware of the unit(the software that runs your mp3 player, controls all the menu's)

Crappy pictures

Describe wierd - this word means nothing. White flash images are over exposed- so reduce the ISO setting to a lowers number if the camera allows it. or Reduce power of the flash. The easiest way to do this is to put layers of tissue of the light reducing the intensity until you get it about right.
