    I'm going to list EVERYTHING I can think of that I've done. Please tell me what I've done wrong.

    1. I tried running the Non-Root method of running Froyo. I tried running Rom Manager but wasn't able to do much. I tried running CWM and feel that might have been a mistake. Hopefully, someone can reassure me that was not a problem.

    2. I was unable to get GApps (Market most importantly) to show.

    2a. After Flashing CWM, I found that if I tried to force the 1.1.0 update, it would error out and put me into Recovery. That was something I assumed would not be possible, since I was of the Understanding that the Non-root SDcard method was restricted solely to the SD card and didn't actually touch the Onboard memory.

    3. I moved on to actually Root my NC. I did the whole, SD-image method and let my NC auto-reboot. The method I referenced didn't mention anything about skipping the Google Account step. So, I tried that with some difficulty and had to back out. I never tried the whole Youtube account sync. I accessed the Market, but none of my downloads will actually go through.

    4. I tried to root again to see if something went awry. This time, I didn't have to go through the Android Setup steps??? But, I went ahead and logged into YouTube. Then, I went to Gmail Accounts>Account Setting, but each time it just causes my NC to reboot. Market still doesn't actually download anything.

    I can't think of anything I'm doing wrong. I'm becoming very agitated. This was supposed to be a simple process, but it is not at all right now. Is it possible that running CWM has caused this problem?

    If I need to start over, I will. But what's the best method for reverting back to pure stock.


    Side Point: I forgot to mention (I will add it to the first post) that after Flashing CWM, I found that if I tired to force the 1.1.0 update, it would error out and put me into Recovery. That was something I assumed would not be possible, since I was of the Understanding that the Non-root SDcard method was restricted solely to the SD card and didn't actually touch the Onboard memory.

    Does that make sense to anyone?

    Problem solved. Had to go over to the XDA-Dev forums for assistance. For future reference, in case anyone else runs into this or a similar situation, here is the fix.

    You must follow the directions linked below to create a Bootable CWM SDcard. Then, you follow the instructions to wipe and restore the NC.

    Note: You'll need to have a copy of 7-zip or other program that can decompress a .tar.gz file. That was easily the most difficult step for me, since I had never done it before. Basically, 7-zip allows you to open the file and then "Copy to..." another location on your computer. The process takes a few minutes, but works. Just remember, simply having 7-zip open the file so that you can see the .img is not enough. You must then "Copy to...".

    [HOW-TO] : Restore Nook Color back to stock EASILY!

    Please feel free to PM me if you need any assistance with that. I'm no expert, but certainly had to dive in deep to figure everything out. I'm am once again rooted with full Market/Gmail access.

    Thanks again to those that helped.
