After formatting my sd card with a honeycomb image using ecm, how do I get it back to the full 8gb? Do I need to use the hp format tool? or was there something with files?

There is information around the web telling you to place your SD Card in your nook and go into settings, device info, unmount the SD, and then format it. This works using the auto-nooter process. Any mod requiring an EXT.4 partition (CyanogenMod, PhireMod, HoneyComb) will not allow this simple procedure. You`ll need software to format your SD card. We recommend using this tool built by the SD card manufacturers association. It is free and simple to use. You can download it here.

There are also reports that putting the Sd card in a USB reader works. I experienced this too. Internal reader = "card not formatted", USB reader = success.

Cheers,
