    Hi JE welcome to the board. I am sure it is possible but probably not necessary. Why don't you let us know what you have done so far and what the current problem is.

    One easy thing to check is that after autonootering (if that is the method you used) you must remove the SD card or the Nook will not boot. It could be as simple as that.

    Please also indicate the directions you followed to try and root. In the mean time if you haven't already seen this, start here http://www.androidtablets.net/forum...color-now-what-aka-complete-idiots-guide.html

    Ok, the autonooter process isn't really that bad. Start with the link above and read it a few times. It is full of info but don't get overwhelmed. The process is esentially 1. Download the autonooter file, 2. Burn that file to an SD card, 3. With the Nook off insert the card into your Nook, 4. Plug the usb cable in to the PC and 5. Remove the SD card.

    Before you do that you will want to have a gmail account that is registered with Barnes & Noble and also linked to a youtube account. It is pretty much impossible to ruin the Nook from a soeftware point of view so not matter what state it is in it can be recovered.

    Is your nook currently booting? If so can you please let me know what the version of Barnes & Noble software is? This is important to picking the correct autonooter file. To find the version go Settings>Device Info>About your NOOKcolor.

    Ok, there is problem #1. The autonooter instructions don't work for 1.2. Still read the thread above for an overview and then read this thread which is for 1.2 and involves a manual nooter since the autonooter isn't out yet http://www.androidtablets.net/forum...d-stock-1-2-rooted-manualnooter-4-4-27-a.html.

    You have lots of options besides a manual nooter of 1.2. YOu can install a custom ROM or create a bootable SD which will allow tou to run custom ROMs from a disk http://www.androidtablets.net/forum/nook-color-technical/13156-how-cm7-bootable-sd.html.

    Before you do anyting though spend some time rading around this forum so you understand your options and what to do when you decide how you want to go.

    Again, welcome and after you have had a chance to read up, feel free to ask if you need help with something :)

    Start with a clean/formatted SD card in your PC.
    Go to [RECOVERY] Making an updated bootable ClockworkMod SD - xda-developers and follow new instructions 1-5.
    The files referenced in step 2 and used in step 4 are attached at the very bottom of the post.
    When step 5 completes, make a backup of your stock 1.2 nook. (You never know when it might come in handy.)
    You now have a flashable CWM SD card and a backup of your system. Put the card back in your PC

    Next, go to ManualNooter 4.5.6 (For Stock 1.2) - xda-developers and begin at "Let's get started".
    Follow the instructions from there and your nook should be successfully Rooted.
