Default B&N Shop resets nook color... ouch!!!

So I am not sure what just happened to my NC. It was rooted, market enabled, apps installed etc.

I (by accident) hit the B&N shop icon in my apps drawer. There was a brief message and then the nook factory reset itself. So I am back to square one, need to re-root and re-enable everything.

Is there a way to avoid this happening again? Are there others out there brave enough to try the shop app and see if it happens? I am not sure if it was just a fluke or if I should really watch out for the B&N shop, etc.

Any wisdom on the matter would be appreciated!!!

OK, so I rerooted and re enabled market, etc... shop works now, loaded with no problems.

Not sure what happened before, I had enabled market the first time using an earlier method, pehaps that had something to do with it?

Same thing happened to me two days ago, so I hope someone posts an answer in this thread as to how to prevent it, or recover from it!

Given the number of rooted nooks that are likely to be out here, it would be unfortunate for B&N if NONE of them could actually buy books from them.

I had this happen to me, but I was running from and external sdcard, so the reset failed. My theory was that I re-authorized the internal version and and external sdcard was still using the previous authorization.

Their book is way over priced. And they have tax at every states, while Amazon has no tax for most of the states. Even if they are able to match Amazon, the buyers still have to pay tax.

Another thing, their search engine sucks. Cannot find anything there.

I rooted my NC within minutes of purchase and have not had this issue. It would be flat-out nefarious for them to be doing this intentionally so, I'm hoping this is just a fluke that some have run into.
