[Q] Bug! Huge problem - Nook reset itself to factory
Firstly, please tell me if I've posted this in the wrong forum.
Today I tried connecting my NookColor to my Motorola Atrix via the Motorola tethering/wifi hotspot app. The Nook discovered the wifi network fine, which was unproteched (motorola default). When I connected to it the Nook said something like "Due to an authentication error your Nook will now reboot". I didn't have a choice and thought it'd just power cycle so I hit okay.
What happened next was a long reboot process which ended in the factory default "Welcome/Setup your new NookColor" screen.
I tried going through the setup. The last step was to connect to a network, so I tried my phone again. It was the only network available. It errored and said please turn off the nook or call customer service.
Any idea what has happened? I have connected my nook to wireless networks many times before, just not my phone's hotspot. Can I just follow the autonooter steps again and be okay? I haven't touched it since this happened.
