Default [Q] factory reset for rooted nook

I know this has been posted before but I am still having trouble. I have a nook tablet rooted and with android using cyanogenmod. I would look to remove it all and go back to the nook factory settings. I have tried the 8 reboot method and it doesnt work. It just boots me to cwm based recovery. doing a factory reset there just resets me back to android again. ia slo tried installing the acclaim update and it wouldnt work either. maybe i need a new micro sd card. please help!

Try the windows instructions from here:

You'll need a spare SD card and the free disk imager that you get from a link in A dam's post. After booting, it sometimes was a couple tries for me to get it to fully "take", but it did reset my Nook back to 100% unrooted factory on very 1.4.0. Be aware this is a FULL wipe & reset, so you lose everything. Good luck.

The "8 failed reboots" method only works if your NT still has stock recovery (typically the case when the NT running rooted stock ROM or just plain stock ROM). Your NT instead has CWM recovery (which most likely was installed when CM was flashed), hence the "8 failed reboots" method will not work.

I'd suggest you consider using the repart.img tool http://raywaldo.com/2012/06/how-to-u...t-8gb-or-16gb/, or the tools in Succulent's repo https://github.com/succulent/acclaim_recovery_sdcard.

Most importantly, be wary of using any method/tool that reformat partitions other than /system, /data, and /cache (especially /factory and /romdata) without first backing the content of the partion to be reformatted -- see http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...7&postcount=31.

I am having a little trouble with this. I need to download the factory recovery zip file. All the links take me to a place where I need to put in my credit card number. it says it wont charge me, but I don't have a credit card to put in. One other place said I need to download a different file in order to download this file, not sure if that sounds right and it makes me nervous. Where can I get this zip file safely??

On the referenced page http://d-h.st/5vJ for bn_142_factory_recovery.zip, click on the second/middle "download" box and you should get a "save as" pop up menu for the file in question.
