Let me re-word my post. This is not a firmware issue, it's a new hardware issue, no matter what firmware it's running. I have a new 10038XXXX new hardware Nook. I am currently running 1.5 rooted. I have found that the keystrokes given for updating the Eink Nook via an unsigned bravo_update.dat:

Quote:
Install bravo_update.dat from sd.

1. Hold the power until your e-ink screen goes off.

2. Press and hold the "<" button on the right side of the nook, and then press and release the power button, while continuing to hold the "<" button.

3. You can release "<" once a screen appears indicating that your device is updating. Wait through the entire process and when you see a launcher screen, reboot once more.
and also

Forcing Software Update

* Turn off nook
* Turn it on
* Quickly hold 2 buttons on either side (not all 4 as previously said)
* A screen will appear on the eInk display that says updating and the lower screen will show "Mounting partitions" and then "Checking for updates"
Do not work on my new hardware nook, with either 1.42 firmware OR 1.5 firmware.

What do you need to do right now?
I want to find out if other new nook hardware owners have been able to use the methods above to update their 1003XXXX hardware via unsigned updates. I haven't.

BTW, this info:
Quote:
If the serial # begins with 10031, the unit MAY OR MAY NOT be rootable. If the serial # is greater than 10031, it almost certainly NOT rootable.
is badly dated. All Eink nooks are currently rootable.
