It has nothing to do with going to B&N, that was just a coincidence for the OP. I've never been to a store with my Nook and it happened. And according to people on the B&N Nook forums it isn't just a 1.2 update issue, it is affecting all NCs.
Same thing here, wiped it and I have nothing...but it never updated. I was just sitting there reading a book and it rebooted & wiped everything- not at B&N either...
I actually tried to do the B&N 1.2 update...but it keeps crashing, so I assume there's a file out there that's causing problems?
I can't get my gmail working, every time I enter my email & pw it acts like it's working, then says "Can't establish a reliable data connection to the server- This could be a temporary problem or your phone may not be provisioned for data services. If it continues, call Customer Care." Has anyone else seen this?
If I go to Settings>Social, it says invalid parameters.
I think I would just like to re-root and the update to froyo or honeycomb that way. Do I need to return to stock, or just re-root??
1. Open SQLite
2. Open devicemanager.db
3. Select "registry" - this should open up a spreadsheet looking file.(This step is easier if you turn the nook to landscape)
4. Find row: com.bn.device.fota.mode
5. Highlight and go over to the column marked "Values"
6. Press and hold "auto" until the "Actions" window pops up
7. Select "Edit Field"
8. Replace auto with manual
9. Select "Save"
This app cost about 3 bucks but it lets you into everything thats on your nook..
