Default [Q] Rooted Nook touch... what next?

Greetings guys.... i have the 1962934272 bytes eMMC Nook touch. I first backed it up; the back size was 1962934272 with and without the bs=1M parameters and is identical. Tried the TouchNooter 1.6.24 ... didn't work ... stuck at the 'Nook by Barnes and noble' screen.... reverted back from the backup. Tried again per "nookdevs.com/NookTouch_Rooting". Put the rooted uRamdisk in. Installed adb on ubuntu and installed on the rooted nook su, superuser.apk, nook color tools, gapps using adb with some help googling around. Rebooted ... this is when the system got updated to 1.0.1.

Well... now when i reboot i am still at the regular B&N screen. What am i missing? I think i need the 'Go Launcher'. To have the same apps as the TouchNooter, i was thinking of installing busybox and buttonSavior from market afterwards. I need to find how to install go launcher .... search didn't yield good results... can somebody give me a link please...

Will the following files from TouchNooter along with the go launcher make it work and at par with TouchNooter?
/system/build.prop, packages.xml, framework.jar.

thank you,
Prasad

I also have a 1962934272 bytes eMMC Nook touch and there is no problem.

TouchNooter works flawlessly (I just had to install it twice because the first time it got stuck).

By the way, if you want to install GoLauncher, you just have to download the apk here
for instance (or take the apk provided with TouchNooter) and then install it using adb install <name_of_the_apk>.apk

Default Agree... will try again.

I was thinking along the lines... I will try again. Thanks for replying mdall... wasn't sure if it a retry will work or not... your reply instills confidence in me to retry. Thanks again.

the other/prior one had 1958739968 bytes eMMC.
when you do a
dd if=/dev/sdb of=./nookTouchOriginal.img bs=1M
you will get a 1958739968 bytes file in slightly older N2E nook touch
but mine purchased on 20 Aug was 1962934272 bytes.
