Default still trying

Am I doing this wrong?
Do I try the three finger wipe when the cyanogen(mod) symbol comes up or when the cyanogen(mod) 7 animated logo starts? All I wanted is access to Android apps( being from Canada).
Tried more than 8 times at the first symbol, but it comes up but the text ....Booting into recovery... Am I too quick on the trigger? Please excuse the old fart with big fingers. Thanks for any replies.

Start with the Nook completely powered off.

Press and hold the Pwr. button, the Vol. + button, and the n button until you see the screen flash.

Release all buttons for 1 sec then press and hold only the Pwr. button until the Nook powers down. (Backlight off) This works best in dim lighting.

Do it again.

Do it 8 times in a row and the next time it will install the image stored internally and you will be back to what it came out of the box with.

If you goof up the timing and it starts to boot up you will have to power it down again and start over at count one.

I have done this several timems on 2 different Nooks and it always works.

Oh and stop with the old fart stuff. I'm 60.

This was extremely helpful when for some reason it wasn't letting me restore the device in the first place. I really should've known about this but I appreciate it greatly and it is pretty great that it works so easily.

So what your saying is that I can restore my NC back to stock even if I've installed CM7 directly to the emmc, using the 3 fingered "salute" boot? I think I did something like this months ago, but my NC has been on the full android for so long now, I want to return it to B&N stock seeing as I have an android phone now...and maybe start over again.

I've never tried it in that exact situation but I think the answer is yes...

I think you mean the Clockworkmod menu, not ROM Manager. If you are in a recovery bootloop, which it sounds like you are, go to my tips thread linked in my signature and look at item A8. Follow what it says and it may get out of it.
