Default (Q) Semi Bricked Nook HD+

Hello,

my mess started after I flashed [Nook HD/HD+][SD Install][4.4] CM11.0/SGT7 (KitKat) http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2583952, after i had CM 10.2 running stable for some while.

After I booted up CM 11 from SD and not really liking it, I removed my SD to start CM 10.2 on emmc again, which it did, but after I picked up my Nook HD+ after a little while, it showed the NOOK start screen, and the device didnt start anymore.

Booting up from SD in goes into recovery showing:

Missing /bootdata/BCB before starting the CWR.

Log file says towards the end:

I:Checking for extendedcommand...
I:Skipping execution of extendedcommand, file not found
...
I:Can't partition non-vfat: /emmc (ext4).

So there is probably something wrong with the partioning of my NookHD+'s emmc, right? Is there a way to repartition my Nook by the likes of Item 16 in your "[USER Tips] HD/HD+ Stock Root User Tips" Thread.

I've tried so far:

Flashing Plain-Stock ROM, Stock revovery, and leapinlar's (who has been a great help) FIX.zip for bricked devices.

I would be very grateful, if s.o. could maybe help me.

Best regards!

My repair zip should have fixed that missing /bootdata/BCB. And those three I: messages are not errors, but information messages which are normal. So there is nothing there saying you have messed up partitions.

You said you had CM11 on SD. Are you still using the CWM SD from that install or are you using the bootable CWM from my thread?

I have used both, and both are booting, also used TWRP 2.6..but only when using CWM-based recovery for CM 11.0 v 6.0.4.5, I get the "/bootdata/BCB missing. Running recovery." message. Always have, since problem exists, even before contacting you, because i formated everything.

When using TWRP 2.6 to install any zip I get:
E:Unable to find parition size for '/recovery'
E:Unable to find parition size for '/boot'
E:Unkown File System: 'datamedia'

and yes, it says parition instead partition.

When installing your repair-emmc-bootdata.zip or stock-recovery.zip it goes through as "Successful".
Installing 2.2.0-plain-stock.zip ends with
Random offset: 0x28x (SOMETIMES OTHER NUMBER)
Boot files...
Boot files...

TWRP states 27070 MB Internal Storage.

I can think of no other help.

thats a real bummer, coming from THE nook expert. Does the offset notification tell you anything? I tried installing plain-stock, stock-recovery, repair bootdata with your SD CWM again, with the same results, as with TWRP.

Guess I have bury my Nook, and just get a Nexus 7.

To Bad

No, those messages from the plain stock zip are completely normal. Those TWRP messages sound suspicious though.
