So far: 1) Rooted my Nook 1.2 with manualnooter 2) Installed/runnning cm7 from internal memory 3) Things working great for about two weeks 4) Boom! Son playing with it while at work so I don't what happened but it froze up. He says he got an error message that told him to reboot and thereafter, it froze up. 5) Tried pretty much everything I can find on recovering a bricked nook. I've tried restoring to stock image method (both 1.1 and 1.2 versions), tried restoring to stock partioning of the internal memory thinking somehow that got screwed up, tried running stock 1.2 from SD card and then 8 reboot method to factory wipe, tried booting into CWM and re-flashing the same CM7 files which I initially flashed. I also have tried the recoveryFix.zip method. I tried the method outlined here Nook Color: Recover Any Bricked Device/return to stock | Maurice Mongeon . When I try to move factory.zip over through adb, I get the following error message: mount: mounting /dev/block/mmcblk0p3 on /emmc failed: No such file or directory. At this point, I can boot into CWM from the SD card. Immediately on booting I get: E:Can't mount /cache/recovery/command E:Can't mount /cache/recovery/log E:Can't open /cache/recovery/log E:Can't mount /cache/recovery/last_log E:Can't open /cache/recovery/last_log When I try to format /system I get: Error formatting system! When I try to format data I get: Error formatting data! When I try to format /cache from the "Mount and Storage Menu", I get "Error formatting cache!" When I "Wipe cache partition" from the main menu it says: Formatting /cache ... Cache wipe complete. E:Can't mount /cache/recovery/log E:Can't open /cache/recovery/log E:Can't mount /cache/recovery/last_log E:Can't open /cache/recovery/last_log When I "Wipe dalvik cache" under advanced menu, i doesn't give me any message - it just jumps back to the main menu. When I burn a fresh image of CWM on the SD card and I try to format data, it hangs on the "Formatting /data..." - I let it go form 3 hours and it was still stuck there. The closest I can find to someone having something similar to me was in this thread: http://www.androidtablets.net/forum...2-proud-owner-brick-seeks-talented-mason.html I tried every fix mentioned in that thread and still come back to the fact I cannot format /system or /data. I think somehow I corrupted the /data /system /cache architecure somehow and don't know how to restore it so that I can recover/reinstall something/anything! When I boot the Nook without an SD card, it gives me the CyanogenMod logo (with "loading..." under it) then goes to a blank screen (after a quick flash of white). When I try booting ith "n+Power" together, it gives me the CyanogenMod logo (with "Booting into recovery...") then goes into the "Install failed. <image of nook with exclamation point> Please power OFF and back ON to try again." screen. Luckily, the nook was a present and came with the extended warranty so I'm about to "accidently spill coffee" (i.e., drown in a tub of water) my Nook since, as far as I can tell, I have boldly gone no one has gone before and actually bricked my Nook beyond any chance of recovery. However, something in my soul screams out against purposely frying an electronic device (especially one as wonderful as the the Nook). Please, can anyone come up with anything I haven't tried yet???
