    Hi all !

    earlier I registered my Nook Color with gmail id and later I deregistered it.

    Now I want to register it back, while using different gmail id, it is not working nor it is letting me to create a new B&N account.

    So do I have to register it again with earlier gmail id ???

    TIA :)

    You can register it to any b&n account. B&n accounts can be created with any email address. Sounds like you are leaving out some key details to your issue. Are you just rooted and logging into android (google) or are you not rooted and registering to b&n?

    Not rooted or anything.

    Took out of the box > registered > read a book > deregistered > Now I am unable to register it.

    So did "erase and de-register".
    Define unable to register, what does it do?
    Did you reboot after de-registeration? What did you see when you rebooted?
    Did the welcome menu start, pick wifi, enter b&n account?
    Did you check this new account online to make sure it's good and functioning?

    Everything seems fine about start up video, t&c page, wifi etc When I enter my email id or try to create new account, after entering those details, it says, unable to register and contact nook support. No specific details at all.

    Again, did you go online and check the account in question? It may not be your NC but the new account itself.

    I am sorry, I am not getting it. To make it clear - old@gmail.com and new@gmail.com

    I logged into B&N with old@gmail.com, it is fine

    I logged into B&N with new@gmail.com, it is fine

    Now I entered old@gmail.com, with which it was registered earlier, the nook accepted it.

    Now what shall I do ? Again erase & deregister ?

    or changing Name & Email from B&N account changes it in device also ?

    TY :)

    Ok, do the "erase and de-reg" again, reboot.
    -Don't enter any account.
    -Log online to both accounts and see if the Nook is still reg'ed to old account (listed).
    -If so, remove it.
    -Then you should be all clear to reg NC to new account.

    I have not done this myself but I know my account online mist my device, so there is most likely an error in their system if a device is already registered (listed) to one account and you try to re-reg it to another. good luck :)

    Nice, glad it worked out. Are you going to root your NC now or hold off?

    I may want to quote your post when people ask in what order of rooting and installing should they proceed with their new Nookcolors.

    I have a NC on the way and I am a little confused about the registration procedure.
    I am going to root and ROM it.
    I have read in the instructions for some custom ROM's that you register it first, then it immediately gives instructions on how to unregister it but doesn't say if this is necessary.
    My question is do I need to register it if I am going to put a custom ROM on it and then just use the nook app? and if so do I register, turn right around and unregister it, then root and flash ROM, then re-register. Or do I just get it add the ROM and add the nook app.

    It only takes a couple minutes to register...and it sets your serial number to your B&N account.

    After you register, you can run any custom ROM's you want.

    The comments you see about unregistering the device before you root is in case you were NOT the original owner. I know it's not clear, but a registered device IS required before root if you are planning to stay on the stock B&N software, otherwise the device will not connect to your B&N account and you won't be able to purchase books from B&N and won't have access to already purchased books.

    However, if you are going to root just so you can load a custom (non B&N rom - 1.0.0, 1.0.1, 1.1.0) then you can skip the registration because you're not going have the B&N software. Once on a custom ROM you can download the Nook app from the market and connect that way.
