Unrooting my Nook Wifi lost Wifi connection: unable to save the hotspot

I had successfully softrooted my Nook Wifi (1002* running 1.5) when I received a Nook Color. Thought the classic Wifi would be good for daughter, so I followed softroot steps to unroot: put signed update on nook, go to home screen and wait for update. It did, and returned to 1.0.

But when I try to set up Wifi, I get Error: Unable to save the hotspot. It's a simple Wifi router: visible SSID, WEP.

I tried adding the JesusFreke wifi fix noted in this post:
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=75066

But no success.

I've also tried disabling security on the router, only to get same error.

FWIW, I also note that there's no Wifi symbol on the top/notification bar, nor does an airplane icon show up there for airplane mode. And there's no MAC address in settings.

I'm still working on the confidence of many posts that say you can't brick a classic Nook, but I'm unsure what to do to regain Wifi connection.

Any suggestions?

Update your nook to a newer firmware version by sideloading (USB).

This is a known bug in stock firmware (not related to softrooting). Once you edited the WiFi hotspots while running a firmware above 1.0, the configuration file is assigned to another owner/group and no longer writeable with 1.0 firmware.

Yep, sideloaded v1.5 and all works as good as new.

Thanks.
