Bricked NST Glowlight. Impossible to boot from SDcard (for Noogie)

Hey all!

I've been admiring e-ink even before it came out. This is why I finally purchased an old NST with Glowlight for damn cheap.
Now, I rooted it using:
  • noogie.img to mount the internal memory on the pc
  • a rooted uRamDisk image with USB adb
  • The device still wasn't rooted, so I downloaded an exploit. Which worked fine.

It has firmware version 1.2.1.

Now, eagerly, I've removed a very few system apps which seemed useless to me.
Yep, I've been stupid.

The Nook is now stuck in a boot loop. I see the "Nook" screen with the five "loading dots".

When I long-press the power button, it just reboots.
When I do "reboot -p" through ADB, it reboots.
When I remove the battery and put it back, it reboots.

It doesn't even turn off!

I wanted to:
  • mount the internal memory with noogie
  • mount my recovery img on the laptop
  • copy all system apps from the image to the nook

Or just reflash it with the recovery.

Yet, the system gets into this reboot loop, which would mean it doesn't even have the time to mount the SDcard, does it?

As attachment, the logcat. Full of errors.

If someone could help a dumb person, that would be nice :P

Thank you

Ps: It's my first post! This forum helped me a lot!

Something is screwed up with Relaunch.
Delete it and install something else.

There are many ways to unbrick touch, search the four subforums.

Then root with glownooter or similar
Update to firmware 1.2.1
Install kernel #166 by guevor

You might want to install nook touch hard buttoNs modmanager to reassign them

To back up:
Install CWM (bumped the thread yesterday), backup (has 2 internal & bigger external to sd), copy system backups to PC

I also use Titanium (see my thread: listing of my apps, version no.) To Backup my system data & apps, backup to PC

Super Manager also backups, but only apps apks.

Thank you !

I've already uninstalled Relaunch through adb. Problem remains.
I'm going to follow your instructions

Hey!

Actually, the key combination for factory reset worked. I tried it before, though.

Thank you for your help
