But the screen simply won't turn on and nothing happens when I press Power buttton or Power+"n". No "n" start screen, no 1.4.2, no recovery.

So I can't load from internal memory as someone above mentioned but able to load from SD.
Waiting to hearing from you)

that i pretty much the same for me.

Ok.. so the BETA 1.4.2 does not work. I'm going to take that one down as it's useless. It works without display on 16 gig units, but it does not work on 8gig units. 8gig units are the entire purpose of having that.

On second thought, I'll leave it up.. for anyone who has a 8gig unit please get UART connected to it.

It would have just been a waste of time is all. it's not loading properly.

What we need now is for someone to figure out WHERE it's stopping in the boot sequence and we can go from there.

Followed instruction to the "T", booted into ubuntu, but process is stuck at "writing all zeros to MLO".
I can tap outside, window loses focus, so it's responsive, just stuck at that step for some reason.
My NT is still a brick =(


EDIT: Turns out that was due to my partitions being all borked.
I found Celtic's thread about using "parted" to fix the partition table, and I'm not at "writing all zeros to SDCARD" step. Hopefully it all finishes up fine.
Maybe you'd like to add a link to OP about this issue. I read it's a common problem now, people doing dumb stuff to their NTs.. I know I did =)

EDIT2: In combination with Celtic's parted guide, ur recovery worked wonders and unbricked my nook =) Donated to both of u guys, thank you!

You're probably only looking at the first partition of your SD card.
R800x: Stock ROM, modified
NOOK Tablet 16GB: LiquidSmooth ROM
Eee Pad SL101 32GB White: need to get rid of
TF700T 64GB Champagne: also need to get rid of
