I bought my own nook color on saturday, there doesn't appear to be a factory image that can be restored. My new nook color came with version 1.01 preinstalled. Before turning it on the first time I put in nookie froyo and did a dd of all 8 of the stock partitions. Below is the zipped up .img files of mmcblk0p1/mmcblk0p5 (boot/system) from a stock untouched 1.01 nook color. I am also including the factory.zip. This should be enough to restore a bricked nook color with a corrupted boot or system partition. Many people have been able to restore to stock by just using the boot.img because after 8 failed boots it will do a factory reset.
To make this work you must have ADB working first. You may be able to get this to work on ADB Wireless, but I don't recommend it. For instructions on getting adb to work with the nook color go here:

To use these files unzip them to the sdcard portion of a nookie froyo sdcard, or just about any other rom that runs from the sdcard and run the following commands in an adb shell:

dd if=/sdcard/boot.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p1
dd if=/sdcard/system.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p5

Boot
System
factory.zip

Yes. But I only used boot.img. Then restored to stock with 8 failed boots. Dd'ing system will also work.
If it dosen't boot, do a factory reset with power+n.

So if I put the factory.zip on /dev/mmcblk0p3 and replace the current one, when we do the 8 bad boot trigger we would get 1.0.1 flashed instead of 1.0.0 right?

Yes. And I would also do a power+n reset at the end, to avoid any problems.

shad0wf0x,

I am having the same problem with my NC not booting after a failed attempt at
re-rooting. I will tell you in advance that I am VERY tech-phobic and don't comprehend all this command-line stuff well at all.

Given your original post above, could you please explain in layman's terms EXACTLY what steps to take to restore my NC to like-new? And hopefully it can be done with just simply putting some files on a micro SD and that's it. Please let me know from start to finish how I do this. Appreciate your help in advance.

P.S. I know I had no business doing this, but I screwed my unit up anyway. I already tried the 8-step interrupt thing before re-rooting but with no success.

vigeh4,

First download the first 2 files, system and boot, and then unzip them. Then you need to copy those 2 files (system.img and boot.img) to the sdcard, either while booted up in nookie froyo or by putting the sdcard in your computer. Then you must have adb working on your computer. open a command prompt or terminal(windows or mac/linux) and go to the location where your working adb is and copy and paste those commands into the window to run them.

Code:
dd if=/sdcard/boot.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p1
dd if=/sdcard/system.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p5

Sorry, I am WAY confused about how to do this. This adb crap is over my head.
Maybe I just have a $250 paperweight at this point. If I mail you my NC, would you reset to "factory" for a small fee?

Thanks.

OMFG, thank you very much for these files and instructions.

I really thought I bricked it to the point of no return. I initially screwed it up when I installed Clockwork and wouldn't boot past "N", then after tinkering around some more, it wouldn't even turn on ... lol.
