Question Problem with rooted touch nook

I have a new touch nook, which I love, though it does have problems.
It's native browser is lame and as purchased android is not accessible.

I tried to root my nook using http://nookdevs.com/NookTouch_Rooting
and got nowhere. For some reason the process would not complete.

I found http://www.the-ebook-reader.com/nook-touch-root.html and
this worked nicely. It appears (to me) that this not a compete Rooting
it is rather a bypass that allows use of Android (which BN doesn't allow)

I have been exploring what is possible with Android and it is very exciting.
I have looked at the Android Market and downloaded Opera, finding it
a far better much more usable browser.

This brings me to my problem. When browsing I attempted to look at a
video. MISTAKE! My Nook is completely locked up, it recognizes nothing,
neither the touch screen or the power button.

HELP! I have no real idea where to go with this. It probably need a major
reset. How is that done? Do I need to let the battery to run out?
