[HOW TO] Fixing Recovery Boot Loop on Nook HD/HD+

Search This thread
If the BCB file or the BootCnt file located in the Nook’s /bootdata partition is missing or does have the expected content, the Nook bootloader will boot/reboot straight to recovery. See http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=21381141&postcount=1 for the explanation (the post was written for the Nook Tablet but it applies to the Nook HD/HD+ as well).

These two files BCB and BootCnt can be restored by flashing (using recovery) the flashable_fix_bootdata-hummingbird.zip for the HD or flashable_fix_bootdata-ovation.zip for the HD+, which are attached below (and also available for download at http://www.mediafire.com/folder/6a4rivb8kkdfu/Nook_HD+).

Thank you, digixmax. I gave the ovation version a try. I don't see the files in the /bootdata partition before or after flashing. I haven't been having issues with booting straight into recovery. However, I have not been able to restore my stock ROM by aborting the reboot 8 times in succession. (I've been messing around with flashing different ROMs.)

Never mind. I see them now. For some reason the TWRP file manager doesn't show them, so I have no idea if they were there previously or not.

Just installed amaces AOSP ovation version and have this boot into TWRP problem. I have to reboot system to get to AOSP.

Flashable fix above did not work for me.
