Got something wrong with my rooted NC. It just keeps cycling through the bootup where is says Nook Color with the flashing colors then back to nook color. None of the bottons seem to have any effect. To be on the safe side I charged it with the official wall plug until it was completely charged.

Anyone got any ideas what to do. I miss having a reset hole that you use a paper clip with.

Hey, Slayda, once you did the initial "put the SD card w/image into the NC, and then plug it in, and it will eventually reboot," did you by chance leave the SD card in the device? I do know that every time one boots up the device with the SD card w/image on it that it will attempt to re-root the device.

No, I took it out & was happily adding apps to the rooted NC, learning about ADW launcher, added some (known to work) apps from the market & then the buttons started acting flaky after it would go to sleep. Finally appeared to go mostly through an update but never got to the green "n". That's when it started cycling. Comes up where it spells out "nook color", "nook" goes away & the "color flashes below the big "n" & then starts over.

I had a blank SD card in & took it out, thinking that it might have had some effect but same-old-same-old cycling.

Since I can't stop it, I guess I'll let the battery drain & then recharge it to see what happens.

Maybe not for the average consumer, but any linux user would know those simple commands.

No kidding!

Slayda, I'll apologize for the folks entering the thread that don't seem to have anything positive to add to help get you going again.

I'll keep looking around to see if I can find anything helpful beyond what Scion has already mentioned. I can tell you that my first rooting experience wasn't very clean, but the next two that I performed went much smoother.

I have successfully rooted my NC - YEAH. but I was trying to follow the instructions on preventing the auto download. I am stuck on step 1 - installing ADB. I am on windows 7 and am assuming I need to download ADB software from somewhere on my PC, but where do I get it and where do I find step by step instructions on how to use it for the color nook?

@ Slayda

Maybe this will work:


To do a factory reset on the NC you need to force your reboot counter to hit 8.
Nook screen while re-flashing

You can power off the nook, and then interrupt the boot process by holding down the power button eight times

Or try this:


Hold down the power button, the "n" and the volume down button at the same time

My experience rooting:

So I rooted my NC yesterday, by first installing the 1.01 updating and then using the latest autonooter method. All went well, except that when I first got through the "welcome" screen with the android and back to the homepage none of the soft buttons worked so before I could do the entire YouTube sign-on, etc. I had to hard boot to finish the job.

Yesterday went well, except that Google Books kept force-closing so I uninstalled it. I installed a few launcher replacements to try them (Zeam, ADW Launcher, LauncherPro), and decided I might just stick with SoftKeys instead. I uninstalled Zeam and LauncherPro and thought I'd make SoftKeys my default home before I uninstalled ADW. However, when I tried to do that it stuck on the "choose your home" popup. I hardbooted again and then--gasp!--it got stuck in the bootup screen with colored "NOOK." I hardbooted a few times again to no avail.

So, after some research I did the 8X thing and then the deregistering wipe to start all over. This morning I reinstalled 1.01, used the same MicroSD card (figuring it should work again) and reinstalled the autonooter thing on my NC.

Again when I got to the homescreen the soft buttons didn't work so I had to hard boot to finish the YouTube log-in process.

I might forgo a home launcher this time and see how it goes.

After you root you need to make certain the core functionality is there. Meaning all things Google related need to work. Once you confirm this, then you can proceed to installing other things including a launcher, etc.

After rooting you should not be encountering any difficulty. If you get stock during the root process that's an immediate red flag that something is wrong. You need to immediately stop in your tracks and boot from the image again. Starting the process over and continue to follow the steps to the letter.

Google Books not working is another red flag. That should work if the root was done successfully.
