I rooted my nook color a good while back and after successfully managing to get everything running like the android store, as well as placing new apps onto the device the thing auto updated. This removed a couple key features like su, but the device was for my uses, still perfectly usable and tolerable in this state. Today however, the device decided to auto update again (the netflix update), and now that B&N has practically redesigned the entire control scheme, pressing the home button or exiting native apps results in it going to a normal nook home with no access to any of the root related apps, such as winamp. These are around after a reboot, as long as I don't press home or launch something from the nook again such as the library or the web browser. At this point I'm debating just unrooting to stock using the guide, and then rerooting to see if I can get the auto update issue solved. I remember never having been able to access the nook's system files from my PC even after the root last time though, but that's a different matter. My questions are, if I were to reset to factory defaults would I lose all registered information such as my B&N account, installed apps and such? Also more importantly, is there a method to root it right now from this latest firmware? It may be extremely tedious as it is, but I'd much rather have something that can competantly play music than mess with the nook's default player. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
