Default Take Nook Tablet BNTV250 Out Of Demo Mode

I searched for this, but didn't find it. I have bought a Nook Tablet that is still in Demo mode. I'm wondering how I would go about making it just a regular Nook Tablet with default factory settings. Can I just erase and deregister? Do I just need to root it and then put it back? Something else? Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you.

if it was truly a demo model , then the option to erase and deregister it will be greyed out and unavailable.

if you have that option available, what could it hurt to try it?

You can reload the unit completely to stock by downloading this disk image, burning the image to an SD card, and booting the NOOK tablet from that card.

You might want to try the "8 failed boots" procedure described as Method 1 at http://nookdevs.com/NookColor/RestoreToStock (it was written for the Nook Color but is known to work for all Nook devices).

Thanks for mentioning that. 8 failed boots would would probably work as well, but the repart.img/bn142.img also has the added benefit of repartitioning the userdata to the large partition scheme scheme as it reinstalls, which is why I always use that method if I have to fix up a borked NT.
