Default [Q] Internal memory become read-only

Sorry for my English.

I have NT 16G with CM7. After waking device from sleep, I was unable to toggle wi-fi state, it stuck on "Turning off.." message. When I tried to restart tablet, it shutdown but not boot up. Just stuck with blank screen and backlight on. So I held power button to shut it off. Then turn it on again.

After that, I can't change anything in internal memory. Device turns on and works for some time, but then restarts on it's own and go back to state before wi-fi problem. Any changes, as new/removed files, applications etc, revert back. Even full wipe via Ubuntu didn't work: after reboot everything back to previous state.

In dmesg I have message
Code:
mmcblk0: retrying using single block read
Any suggestions?

Can you boot into cwm? Try fixing permissions and try again.

It didn't change anything. Looks like I have hardware damage. Is it possible?

DONATE TO ME
Its a kernel regression, you need to format that mmcblk0 and re-create.
If this doesn't work sent for replacement as it may be a faulty chip.

How can I format it? It doesn't accept any changes. Is there any other way?

Reformatting the internal partition can be a screwy and hard thing to do. Not because it's hard to format, but simply because it's hard to retrieve the original table. Because the first 4 partitions are very secure, They need to be matching perfectly with Barnes & Noble's partition table. I recommend you just try my guide on unbricking stuff:

Interesting. :l Have you tried booting off the sdcard? What do your partition table look like? Do you have it by any chance?

So everything looks fine. Have you dumped xloader bootloader recovery and boot partition using lavero.burgos. images??
