Default Rockbox and OF "manual" uninstall/reinstall

What is the procedure for starting all over again on a rockboxed fuze v2? I want to reinstall the original fuze firmware (last version) and rockbox again.

In readiness I've patched the bin file as follows. Does this look right?

C:\Users\****\Desktop\rbinstall>mkamsboot.exe fuzpa.bin bootloader-fuzev2.sansa
mkamsboot Version 1.5
This is free software; see the source for copying conditions. There is NO

The recommended procedure is to use Rockbox Utility. Considering the only time there's a danger of bricking the player is during the bootloader installation and you're uncertain enough to ask here I'd follow the directions given in the manual

Following the manual's directions on how to uninstall manually then reinstalling using the automated installer accomplishes exactly what you're doing. Not "close" or "just about", the results are exactly the same.

Mind relating what's wrong with the bootloader? I'm asking because that just about never needs to be done.

Thanks nothing wrong with the bootloader that I know of, it's just that I found various infos and becase I only have fleeting cafe internet access at the moment decided to do it manually because I can't get rockbox utility to work without an internet connection, it locks up (Rockbox not the fuze).
