Question [Q] [N2E][1.1] How To Unroot TouchNooter 2.1.31

Hello:

I've rooted my N2E with TouchNooter 2.1.31

I've tried to unroot using both versions of nookRestore image (0.1 and 0.2).

Even though I do passs through the Factory restore screen and my nook does go back to 1.0.0 version , after booting I'm still rooted on TouchNooter 2.1.31

Can anybody please help me on how to unroot the device?

Thanks in advance,

You have removed the microSD card before rebooting, yes?

Indeed, Bill: every time. Same result. BTW, the internal memory library remains intact, I'm still registered as the device owner with my B&N account... and it boots still rooted.

Other that leaving the system on 1.0.0 version, no change.

I'm going to root with NookManager, but first I need to have the device in factory stock condition... so I'm rather stuck.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance,

Huh, why?

The only reason that you might ever want to restore to factory stock is if you had a hardware problem, wanted in-warranty repair and were concerned that B&N might not honor that if you had Angry Birds showing on the screen.

If your system is screwed up, you might want to install the update for 1.2.1

Thanks for your prompt reply, Renate.

[EDITED] I moved my "over rooting" question here.

To answer your question, yes I'd very much like to upgrade my N2E to 1.2.1, but I understand that firmware 1.2.1 is not compatible with TouchNooter 2.1.31 that very much still remains on my N2E.

Wouldn't that be a brick scenario?

Any thoughts?
