Or I just don't have enough patience. I followed this:How To: Root the NOOKcolor (AutoNooter) I did the firmware update last night, and I'm pretty sure it was 1.1.0 neither download says it's for this, so...I thought I'd try them both: the first time I did the 2.12.25 img and it hung on the boot image FOREVER, the n symbol... then I tried to reset it by holding the power & n button repeatedly. It finally came up, but said it couldn't find the soft keys and I couldn't use the home screen. so I tried it all again, same thing. (formatted the sd card between and completely started the directions over) Then I tried the 3.0 and it's gone past the future of reading screen on to a cool little android guy, but it just keeps repeating that... it's probably been doing that for 15 minutes or more... What now?? Can I just get back to stock?? Thanks ...I'm so bummed, I really wanted this to work!!
