Since this page deals with modifying the initfs, the method to undo
this should also be mentioned...
(Thanks to <s-ndh-c> on #maemo to help me out with this)
1) Unpack the flasher image
./flasher-3.0 -F blah.bin --unpack
2) Flash with the initfs image
./flasher-3.0 --initfs initfs.jffs -f -R
3) Reboot

This will bring your N800 to the original initfs image.
