Exclamation [Q] Rooted Nook tablet 8gb won't go past the slide to unlock screen

I rooted my nook tablet a year ago using this tutorial: http://youtu.be/5n2D5-Q6UFg

Last week I was reading on it and I went to slide to unlock my device. It lets me slide to unlock, then shows the screen for a brief second before turning dark again into stand by mode. At that time I just turned it off and went to sleep cuz I was tired. But today I turned it on again, and it DID IT AGAIN!!!! So I rebooted countless times! I even held the power button for 20 seconds and rebooted!

Why is it doing this all of a sudden???!!!!!!

Most likely you've had an app / widget go bad / get corrupted. You can attempt to boot into safe mode by holding down both the up and down volume buttons during boot up. May or may not do anything. YMMV.

Other options, reflash the ROM over the top or do a factory reset and start fresh.
