    I was trying to put android on my daughters nook and now it loops on startup with the arrow going around in circle. I used nooter, latest cm7, I tried CWR and clead cache, davik and loaded CWR from card everything went OK but still looping. What can I do to get it back to stock to start all over again?
    Thanks for all your help.:mad:

    After hours of reading I found a fix using clockwork 0.4.tar.gz and stock image v1.0.1, but was unable to clear cache using this method and the above method after rebooting it seemed to start normal then gets stuck on the N page. Did I use the correct versions to do this? PLEASE HELP!

    What version of CWR are you using? If it is not 3.2.0.1, you need to update it.

    I used this file: clockwork_1gb-0.4.tar.gz, if I have to update to 3.2.0.1 what stock image do I use?

    Any ROM, stock or custom, will work with ClockworkMod Recovery 3.2.0.1. It is simply the newest CWR that fixes issues with the previous CWRs. You should always use the latest CWR.

    Thanks for your help. I copied the newsest CWR to SD and stock image but I am unable to apply when I power up regular or using power button and home button. What am I doing wrong? is there a way to revert back to stock and not be able to root unit again? I do want to root agin but at this point I am completely lost on what to do, I have spent hours reading but most threads on this are almost a year old and all methods I tried did not work.

    There is a certain timing to using the power and n button. After it begings to turn on you need to hold the n button for 6-8 seconds and then you shold boot into recovery. If you can't get that to work you can create a bootable CWR card. Simply instert into a power off Nook, power on and it boots to recovery. Once in recovery via either method, all you need to do is wipe system/data, clear cache, clear dalvik cache and flash the zip file of the ROM you want to install.

    I was in your same boat a few days ago when Flash 11 update jacked my perfectly setup B&N 1.2 with Manual Nooter! Urgh! I had to go back to stock using this thread:
    http://www.androidtablets.net/forum...install-cwr-save-root-revert-stock-image.html

    This will get you to back to a stock 1.0.1 Nook. Then put this file on your boot CWM SD card:
    xda-developers - View Single Post - [UPDATE ZIP] Stock 1.2 update.zip flashable from CWM

    Once you have B&N 1.2 loaded, get the 1.3 update from the B&N website and side load (using the USB). It will eventually update once it goes to sleep - follow the directions on the B&N support page.

    I've decided to just boot using CM7 and have the stock Nook 1.3 on normal boot until a more reliable Manual Nooter version comes out with full Market support.

    Good luck.

    To return to a full 1.3 version of stock, put this file on your bootable SD card with CWR, wipe system, data, cache and Davlik and install this .zip, pull the card and reboot, just as if you were going from stock to CM7. This is just the reverse. You will be left with a completely stock ROM on the latest version (1.3): http://dl.dropbox.com/u/30572895/Nook_Color/update-nc-stock-1.3.zip

    Thanks everyone for your help, I finally fixed the problem, I can say how since I tried a bunch of things and lost track but I was shocked to how easy it was to root again after having the 2 files needed.
