I have an 8GB Nook Tablet and made the foolish mistake of attempting to try and root it with acclaim-update.zip. Now my Nook will no longer boot and I've tried every unbricking method available. No progress was made.

I was a bit too eager to eager and rushed headfirst into it without researching it more thoroughly. If there's no fix for it, then that's fine. I just wanted to run through ever resource possible before giving up on it. I have spent the past few hours scouring the internet and coming up with little to nothing.

Have you tried booting CM7 from sdcard?

What things have you tried to make it boot?

Shouldn't you just be able to put the unmodified acclaim_update.zip on your sdcard? It should work and fix your nook. When you put the sdcard in, make sure the device is off, and then connect it to the power adapter to get it to turn on

So far I've tried the Ubuntu method of unbricking it, factory reset, and booting with the 1.4.2 zip file to return it to factory settings. None of them have worked.

But I'll try CM7 and see if it works.

Am in the the same shoes... got a bricked NT 8GB... looking forward to restoring 1.4.2...

attempts to restore the firmware to factory:

Cyanoboot + altboot + B&N 1.4.2
Followed guide here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1562130 , using (a) the img from dropbox and (b) nooktablet_1_4_2_update.zip from B&N. No luck. The process stops on the initial screen on cyanoboot, where it shows 'Loading (sd)...'. I don't even get to enter the menu that shows the boot options.


flashing_boot + B&N 1.4.2 update in ext3 partition

Next I downloaded the img link above, http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...63&postcount=5 , no luck also, the tick appeared on the flash 'Installing new software' screen after 4 minutes. After I removed the mSD card, the NT did a data cleanse, and got an error message about 40% into the factory restore prompting me to contact B&N. It then goes into the reboot loop (this is where I am now).

Ubuntu unbrick
No luck. NT don't even boot up to mSD with the mSD card slotted in.


I've tried the above multiple times, downloading the files few times as well. Am still stuck in the reboot loop.


Would like to seek help from gurus here for pointers... Am stuck at this point.

Thanks alot!
