Rooted. Wrecked. Rebirth?

After successfully rooting my underused ST w. Glowlight, I found that it was not really what I wanted so I attempted a factory reset, only to find that I had not... made a backup. This seemed OK to me as I had the ebook files elsewhere and assumed that the Nook firmware would not get wiped. The factory reset seems to require a separate image of the OS to be available on the sd card. Is this so?

Currently, the factory reset is stopping part way through the Wi-Fi setup ('connected to the Internet'), 'Registering your device' to 'Error. We're having trouble setting up your NOOK... please try again'. I press 'Device info' and then 'Reset' and the attempt starts again.

ADB doesn't register the device.
  • It looks like the whole firmware needs to be replaced. Would I do this by using a SD card with Nook Manager (or something better?) and an update on it?
  • I gather that the 1.3.1 Glowlight update at B&N is not rootable. Is this so? Is there another version that I can find that will be so?
  • Is there a pre-built 'package' that I can use to either just reset my nook to normal or root it again but with Nook app still on it?

Help urgently needed!

The rooting process is non-destructive. The problem is you cannot register a nook in the UK anymore B&N have ceased support here, but you can skip the registration process.

Hope this helps
