    I was in a B&N store this afternoon and my rooted nook was automatically reset by B&N. I lost my root and all my data.

    Has anyone experienced this?

    Did it automatically update you to 1.2?

    Yeah, a ton of people are experiencing their NCs being rebooted and wiped. Barnes and Noble says they are working on figuring out what happened. But for now we must just wait.

    No. I went home and manually updated to 1.2 myself. I thought, what the hell, I wait until someone(s) figures out how to root 1.2

    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.

    I did the update yesterday afternoon and things were going swimmingly. This afternoon it went into the registration loop. Now, the thing's a brick.

    Did you have the OTA blocked in the fota.mode?

    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??

    Help!

    I have had enough with this thing resetting, it has happen to my rooted NOOK twice before last week.

    SO this time I flashed CM7 and I LOVE IT! Got all my apps back thanks to APP Brain, and now I have other apps that would not work on a rooted NOOK!

    Here is how I did it, I find this HOW TO better than the one posted on the "How to Forum".

    What is the fota.mode and how do I do this?
    Here are the directions.

    Required Apps:

    - SQLite Editor (in market)

    Process:
    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..

    You know, I was worried about this, so I flashed CM7. Holy Cow, was I grateful I did. CM7 (tablet optimized) is awesome.

    It's such a great experience.
