It semt to work - but did not work for me !

I have a Nook 1.4.0 that was tweaked to sideload apps. Then with 1.4.2, I mad eseveral attemps to root with indirect method, Albert, Brian. I got some kind of different suystem now but than never worked (neither USB debugging, nor Martket, nor APK installs)

So I tried this acclaim-update.zip and the process semt to go very smooth (installing new software etc). Unfortunately, when it starts again, I get the same broken system as before.
I dont know what do to...

PS: ARG - the procedure did not work, yet it seems the N button does no longer work!

So I tried the 8 times reboot with N+Power, and that one relaunched some kind of reinstall that indeed seems to have reset everything to 1.4.0!

Thanks

Unhappy Oh, I need serious help again...

My Tablet is now in no-mode (keeps stocked on B&N "read forever screen) and this resttore no longer works.

- Yesterday, I restored 1.4.0 using this thread method. Worked
- Then I used Albert Wertz s Backup of a rooted 1.4.0 from here
It seems has already OTA bloked
- Then I was to install CM7, and used the CWM flasher apk. That is where somewhere I did a mistake, after backing up and erasing all data, I somehow got in trouble, and restored the old 1.4.0 B&N
- Now I am willing to go back to stage 0, but when I try using this restore it does not work anymore, I guess because my build.prop has been changed in the process
It says "assert.failed: getprop ("ro.product.device" = blaze or somehthing alike.
- The curse is, I cant use other restores I bhave (for some MD5 mismatch after redoing cards etc
- I also cant use ssimple root procedures, as my basic system is coorrupted.

I am lost!
Really would like some help, I'd like find someone I could even pay to coach me back to track!

If I used team - b final version of cynogen 7 internally for my 16 gb nook tablet, can I still use Acclaim_upadate.zip to get back to original software. If so can I use it using the recovery mode( install zip from sd card) instead of formatting the sd card And putting the zip file in the root of sd card.

I tried with 2gb scan disk card( fat 32) and it's taking me to recovery mode. When I tried to install zip from sd card I am getting this below error. I don't know what I am doing wrong.

Use this with a 4gb sdcard min. , that has been said before and i think is in OP aswell.
This should work over any rom you have installed but first is better if you flash stock recovery by using recovery flasher app by @Indirect (easiest way), dd, terminal emulator app or fastboot (cyanoboot feature).

after some investigation - factory.zip in /factory is identical to acclaim_update.zip which is different from nook_tablet_1.4.2.zip in the presence of a 423 byte header at the beginning.

So for 8GB units if you do

dd if=nooktablet_1_4_2_update.zip of=acclaim_update.zip bs=423 skip=1

you can get the same effect as long as your MLO & u-boot are OK, to fix that look for succulents cwm and zips in github
Thanks & best regards

Newbie question. Just got a Nook Tablet which came with 1.4.3. Can I just follow the instructions in the first post to "downgrade" to 1.4.0? I just want to add the ability to sideload apps and I'm happy.

Any risk I should be aware of? Of the downgrade that is, not the risk of installing random apps.
