I finally got my NC to turn on...thanks SO much! I used the restore to 1.3 thread and thankfully, I had saved the restore 1.3 zip, from a prior incident ! Now, another question. (such a noob) I previously disabled OTA with Sqlite editor. I would now like to upgrade my unrooted 1.3 to 1.4.1 or 1.4.3 and then root. The NC is not recognizing the stock 1.4.3 image from B & N. Do I now have to root my 1.3 and then install Sqlite editor and change the value, to allow updates? I was under the impression that since I supposedly, "restored to stock 1.3", that OTA block would be uninstalled. Sorry, if this is a silly question. I would really appreciate some guidance on how to go from here. I want to stay with a stock ROM and root with manual nooters. Again, thanks to all who deal with the "Noob syndrome"!
