Default [Q] Bricked 8GB Nook Tablet

My Nook Tablet won't turn on it's just a black screen. It does turn on with a CWM SDcard but it wont let me install anything, it says "E:Can't mount /sdcard/" or "E:Can't mount /emmc/". It says this error when CWM starts up:

E:Can't mount / cache/recovery/command/
E:Can't mount / cache/recovery/log/
E:Can't open / cache/recovery/log/
E:Can't mount / cache/recovery/last_log/
E:Can't open / cache/recovery/last_log/

I've tried this http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1663836 but it gives me an "X" right away. I have also tried http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1470910 but the Nook doesn't even boot up. I was going to try this http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1570022 but wasn't able to because the SDcard won't mount. I've been going at this for hours, any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

I had Cyanogenmod 11 and Clockworkmod 6.0.4.x installed before it stopped working. Do you guys think the reason I can't mount anything in CWM SD card is because it's an older version of CWM? The version I have is 6.0.3.7. Is there a newer version of CWM for SD card I can try out?

So you don't even get a cyanoboot screen ? I would recommend trying to install a 10.x version of cyanogynmod and see if it restores the boot loader for you. I say this because it should work with the sdcard you have.

Hopefully that will give you back access to recovery and what not.

Yeah, it won't turn on unless I have the CWM sd card inside. With the sd card I get Cyanoboot and recovery. But I can't install anything because CWM or TWRP can't mount the sd card.

You shouldn't have to mount the SD card if you are booting off of it, it should be browseable. You should be able to copy a ROM and gapps onto the card ahead of time and just flash.

OK, do you have a second sd card? You could dismount the boot SD card (cwm is loaded in memory) then mount the other card and see what happens. It's possible the image you used for cwm doesn't allow have of the boot card.

If you'd like to go back to stock, you might consider the method posted at http://raywaldo.com/2012/06/how-to-u...t-8gb-or-16gb/.

To re-flash CM10.x, see http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=163.

It's still showing the same error. E:Can't mount /sdcard/

I have tried that method before but it didn't work for me. I got a red X where the checkmark is supposed to be and after a while it it says "The device will shut down in 5 seconds. Remember to take out the sd card before powering up!" then shuts down.

Any progress? I have identical situation, in your problem and your steps to resolve. I'm thinking the partitions got nuked. Unfortunately, ADB won't recognize in Windows, and I don't have Adb installed in my Linux machine to manually repartition. I'm thinking partition 5 got wiped, which of what I read is a hard brick, as it contains all the device info.

Have you tried partitioning a sdcard with CM installed to run off of it? I believe this will be my next step..if that fails I'll try to repartition with Linux.
