Really confusing boot loop (Rooted stock)
Edit: Aaand somehow this ended up in the accessories forum. Can I get this moved to general? I don't even browse accessories. Sigh.
I recently returned to stock 1.2 with the default recovery flashed (CWM SD card), and then I upgraded to 1.3, and then rooted with the ManualNooter 4.5.18 and 4.6.16 (or whatever their numbers are, I followed the instructions to the T).
It worked fine and I installed everything i needed from the market/titanium backup/etc but the second time I reboot the device it is stuck in a boot loop. The splash screen slowly writes out the word "Nook Color" and it will complete this once, but the second time it does this, it reaches the L in Color it stops and starts over. It will do this for hours.
I wiped it and started fresh over, reinstalling 1.2, re-updating to 1.3, re-nootering (sounds dirty...) all over again, re-installing all my apps all over again (took forever) and yet it still does this. As soon as I rebooted it, this began again
I'm a longtime lurker with a rooted and much-abused DInc, I've had PhireMod, CM7 (without the sleep of death) and Honeycomb on my Nook all without issues (that I couldn't fix). But this has me completely flummox'd. What makes this harder to deal with is that my Nook will not recognize my home Wi-Fi so I have to do all my work on it during my lunchbreak (another issue entirely; unrelated, home wifi is a software solution)
Any Ideas? I haven't yet had the chance to flash the better kernel, because when I reboot it's stuck in this loop. I tried re-nootering and that did not help.
