Touch Nook Rooted with some problems

http://cdn0.4dots.com/i/smiliesadd1/help.gif
As noted with my past postings (located in nook forum) I have rooted my Nook with the easy method. This seems to be a bypass, not a full rooting. It is useful but not complete.

I would like to do a complete rooting. I've tried the compete rooting with it as is and found that doesn't work. This shows I need my Nook to be returned to it's original state to do the rooting. I've tried to do this by powering down the Nook 8 times and this doesn't work. Apparently the bypass I have makes this unworkable.

In addition to this I have made the mistake in locking the Launcher to the stock Nook Home. This software is badly designed because this cannot be easily reversed.

I have found that I can get to Opera (which I had installed) by entering Internet addresses in the Nook's search when I am connected to the Net. Workable, but not ideal.

The basically I need to find out how I can return my Nook to it's factory state, and if this is not possible a way unlock Launchers Home setting.

I have restarted my old computer with Lubuntu 10.04 so I could work with my Nook. Unfortunately, I have been unable to find the Linux files on the Nook. Some help would be appreciated.

thanks
