    Default How to Unroot / Restore / Unbrick the Nook Color


    This just came out this morning.
    I thought this might help to make the decision to root a little easier for some people.
    I did root using Alex's directions and was very happy with the results.

    Nice find. If the up coming update does not have all I want with my NC I will be rooting. A vid like that makes me feel much better incase I mess it up.

    I figured it would encourage people to root or stay rooted with a tool like this program.

    I don't know if this works with a bricked NC if it won't even boot but if you interupt the boot sequence 8 times it will reinstall the orignial SW itself. Then all you have to do upon the first normal reboot is to go into settings/device info the erase and dergister device. This will clear everything and it's just like the day you bought it.

    Usually, I agree with the above.


    But I could not get past the register screen during set up and tried all kinds of things and got really lucky with B&N digital support and they helped me get my NC back online.

    I would have preferred trying Alexs fix 1st.
