[Q] Failed my first root attempt (boot loop?). Suggestions for round 2??
Hey guys I picked up a Nook Color yesterday and attempted to root the device but failed.
It came stock running 1.2, so after doing some research I found I would need to use manual nooter over autonooter. I'll give full details below but I followed the instructions at these 2 links:
I went through the instructions and was able to root the device. After the root process I booted into Android and successfully installed some app's. I attempted to reboot the device again just to test stability and this is where it went downhill. The device would continually display the nook color image looping one after another; it would not fully boot. In order to return to stock I held the power button, up volume, and n button and restored the device.
- During the process of making a boot-able ClockworkMod SD win32diskimager version .2 and .3 will gives me an error saying - "Not enough disk space". I used version .1 for my attempt and it let me burn. I have a 2 gig SanDisk MicroSD card and downloaded 2gb_clockwork-188.8.131.52.rar. Not sure if this is even related to the error.
- I copied an epub book over to internal memory.
App's after root
- I installed Angry Birds, Crazy Snowboard, Dophin HD, Facebook, Twitter, Flash 10.3, Google doc's. I also followed the steps in the links from the instructions above (setting up marketplace).
What do you guys think is going on here? The only problem I saw was with the disk image, but I don't want to buy a new MicroSD unless I really need to. It was weird that I was able to boot once after root, but after rebooting that's when it fails; like I installed something bad. Anyone have any recommendations for me? Also is the power button, volume up, n button trick a pretty solid way to restore? I was worried!
