[Q] help needed: stuck on startup screen after doing restore
I'm at wits end and am hoping someone here can help me. I recently bought a Nook Simple Touch (v 1.2.1), and tried to root it using this thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2040351
Things seemed to go OK and I think I rooted it successfully, but I got frustrated because the amazon app store wasn't working and I couldn't figure out how to get google apps up and going. So I figured I'd restore it back to original state, do some more reading, and try to root it again when I had more knowledge. I was able to get it to the screen to do the factory restore (# 3 on this thread: http://nookdevs.com/Nook_Simple_Touch_restore_to_stock
), but it is hung up on the start screen (the screen that says "nook by Barnes & Noble" with the dot moving across the five circles). It's been hung for over an hour.
I'm really frustrated - I've rooted phones before, and recently rooted a Nook HD+ with zero issues.
When I rooted it I thought I was making a backup by hitting the backup button before hitting the route, but I don't see any backup image on my SD card.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
ok, I am a huge fan of the Brontes but have never been so excited to see their faces as I am now! After a lot of frustration and cursing, but lots of persistence, I was able to successfully do the system restore, by doing #2 on this thread ((# 3 on this thread: http://nookdevs.com/Nook_Simple_Touch_restore_to_stock
)). It appears that option #3 wasn't really working (I hit the home button twice per the instructions, but then it turned into a cycle of hell).
So now I will proceed more cautiously, first being certain I figure out how to make a backup...
