    Will that dd command used in the tutorial you posted near the top of this page work in a Win7 os?

    Thanks,

    Oh, boy do I have issues! But I think I might recover. I wrote a big long message over on the Color owners thread so I won't repeat myself here. Basically - nothing worked - screwed up my sd card, nothing would boot up my NC - tried the 8 x thing, reformatting card - finally used SD Formatter to clean up my card and put Froyo back on. Then I was able to boot Froyo - however I couldn't put ROM Manager back on because I couldn't get ADB to work for me. Steve suggested I come over to this thread for some help and ideas and after reading the messages and going back to the Color Portal tutorial that you referenced on how to install ADB - I think I'm on my way back. Whoever wrote that tutorial for the Color portal did a magnificent job. I can't decide now if I should try to install CWR and go back to stock, or move some Google apps over to use with Froyo. My preference is to go back to stock, but I'm a little worried that I will mess things up again. Anyway, thanks for the good directions you give. Your tutorials are very clear and complete and I'm sure that many people appreciate how well you do that. I'll be back if I screw things up again.

    Its probably a good idea to go back to a autonootered nook for now instead of froyo. But its up to you. Let us know if you have problems. If your system gets screwed up u may need to wipe then restore a backup or factory restore and reroot.

    The reason I used Froyo was that it was bootable. Are the other "restore to stock" images bootable? (I sometimes convince myself that I know what I'm talking about, but I really don't!)

    I am not sure if they are bootable.Sorry. Also I haven't use froyo on nook myself so I am not sure if clockwork will work for backing up either if u r booting from sdcard.

    We are glad to help! More stable Roms for NC should be coming soon, which may be based on froyo or gingerbread.

    I've read all the threads that say it's virtually "impossible" to truly brick my NC, but I think I've done it. It was running Froyo from SD, overclocked to 1.1 GHz and everything was going great. All of the sudden it locked up and now it's on a hopeless boot loop. It won't boot off the SD card or internal memory. When booting internal, it never gets past the "Touch the Future" screen before starting over. I've burned several CWR cards and it starts "loading" then reboots. It restarts so quickly I can't interrupt it to get the boot count to 8. I also cannot connect via ADB or SSH using a nooter disk. Did I just learn a $250 lesson? After six hours fighting with it, I give up for tonight...

    At the risk of sounding like I know what I'm doing (I don't really), one way or another I have managed to completely brick (I thought) my NC. For me, getting my SD card formatted correctly was probably the biggest problem. I downloaded SDFormatter and used the "overwrite" option to format. (It takes a long time.)
    Then I went to the "restore to 1.0.1" thread and followed the directions there. I took my newly formatted sd card and using WinImage I put the "bootable Clockwork_1gb" image on the sd card, and then dragged and dropped the "nook-complete-retore-1.0.1 zip" onto the sd card. Then I followed the directions on that thread from that point. It should boot to clockwork recovery and then you can go from there - if you get that far. I have done this more times than I can count because I kept getting stuck in CWR and in my attempts to get out of CWR I lost all communication with my NC. Dead screen, power button didn't work, and nothing I tried would boot it. If you've already tried all of this, I apologize for taking your time, but I do think that reformatting my sd card with sdformatter was the key for me getting the whole thing working again.
