    Hi,

    I've run into a boot-loop problem with my rooted nook color.
    It was working fine before, but i turned it off today and connected it to a charger.
    Suddenly i noticed it started booting up but the boot stopped at the Nook Color devs screen. It keeps looping on that screen till halfway the word color (in rainbow colors)

    I haven't done any updates or anything, it just started doing that.
    Is there a way of doing a reset WITHOUT having to go through a factory reset ?
    Of course, being the *ss i am, i forgot making a backup, so i would prefer not to lose data and stuff on the nook.

    As i recall, i rooted the Nook Color with CMW 3.0.2.8 and Manual Nooter 4.5.18.

    Any help would be appreciated :)

    Kind regards,

    Jeroen

    I am having the same problem.
    Is this something that pertains to the manual rooter?
    Should I switch to Phiremod or will I have the same results whether I continue with manual tooter or Phiremod?

    Please help.

    If you have ClockworkMod Recovery internal hold power and n for like 8 seconds to boot into recovery. Then try clearing your cache partition and dalvik cache. Then reboot.

    If you have CWR on a bootable SD card insert that do wipe both as above, unmount the card, remove it and reboot.

    Hopefully that will break the boot loop.

    I tried the cache wipe, and it looked to go further into the boot ... but in the end it just got into the darn loop again *sigh*
