I tried installing the touchnooter-2-1-31.img image to access root on my new Simple Touch with 1.2 on it, although I noted the root access was originally designed for 1.1. This following the FAQ over at nookdevs. Looking at Google Code there is no newer version. Upon reboot it hung at the "starting up" screen. I then went to return to stock by rebooting and pressing the bottom two page turn buttons. This ran through the restore procedure OK, got back to the "starting up" screen and is currently stuck there.

Any thoughts on next steps?!
