Unhappy [Q] nook is bricked, still response to root format

hello guys,
i am a new android user and it is second time for me to root/flash room, my nook tablet was rooted and when i tried to flash cm 10.2, tablet won't boot from sd card, so i press n + power bottom(as someone said it can help tablet go to cwm recovery 6.0) i believe i hold 10-15 second, and i accidentally replease one of the bottom, n or power, i am not sure.. so my nook become as brick. every time i turn it on, it says i need to reboot again, if doesn't work i need to contact to nook customer service.

now, i have used two method so far, ubantu and cwm recovery, they seem not working at all(the tablet won't let me in to cmw v6.x when it was not bricked),and i tried the last one and only one that was use repary.img to recover(which is newest method in 2012,i am not sure if there a way way other than this) repart.img won't unzipped on my computer, my computer is win7 64 bit,the zip said,"unexpected ending of this archive"
what that mean?it means i am only one cannot unzipped the file in that thread.
by the way, i can still go to cwm 5.0 for my root-format sd card, but not the recovery sd card or anything else, HELP!!! it has been whole day!

Hi,
you need a clean copy of the repart.image.
http://d-h.st/5vJ
instruction thread here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1663836

the repart.img sd card has been the most dependable way for me to reset any nook tablet , 8 or 16gb to stock.

I'd say get the latest copy of the img file, and burn it to a CLASS 4 Sandisk card

my experience is higher or lower class cards are often not as good for booting from NOOK tablets

if you erased the /system folder accidentally and di not reinstall an operating system, then the tablet will try to boot into recovery
if you erased the /factory partition accidentally, then even with a good recovery partition, the recovery will fail

sorry to hear that.

I have a similiar tablet, something has triggered the flash ram to not accept any writes

see: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2663470

I have seen the problem on other devices (gps's) , but only once on 100 NOOK tablets
