Hey guys ,

Just wondering 1st thing does the Nook Color only boot through the sdcard?

and i don't think it will hold a charge, not too sure hasn't been turning on for about 6 months now and i think it's bricked not too sure.

I have it charging right now and the light is orange on the charger so it might be charging. I will let it charge and see what happens.

The nook color is rooted with CWM recovery and wit cyanogenmod ROM just don't know what versions of both if you ask and it's needed.

Any help will be appreciated if you need more information please reply and i will tell you.

You need to go to my NC Tips thread linked in my signature and make a bootable CWM SD per item A10. Then you can flash a new ROM to fix it.

Yeah i tried that last night and i tried again 20 minutes ago, would help if my computer would recognize the nook color.

Had to use an old phone to burn the .img file and put it back into my nook and still won't boot up

EDIT: It booted up so now i am downloading CM 10.2 is that a good ROM to flash?

You say you got it booting, but you do not burn by hooking the device to a computer, you take the SD out and insert into the PC. And any ROM should fix it. Try the same one you currently have installed.
