Nook Suddenly won't boot up - freaking out
I rooted my Nook Color two days ago. It's been running CM 7 and everything has been going smoothly; android marketplace and every app was working excellently. An hour ago, I was downloading something and the net dropped out; the download was stuck. So, I turned off the device and turned it back on.
Now it just sits (I let it go for 20 minutes once) on the "Touch the Future of Reading" screen. What's the problem, how can I fix it, and how can I keep it from happening again?
NOTE: I just tried unplugging my nook and starting it up. While plugged into the wall, turning on the device just keeps it stuck on the "Touch the Future of Reading" screen, as I mentioned above. When it's not plugged in, nothing happens; the screen doesn't turn on at all, even though when I shut down my nook it was a like 60% battery.

Is there a way I can fix it, like reinstall or whatever using CWM, without losing all my apps and such? I also wanna figure out what I did wrong the first time so this won't happen again...

EMMC is the internal memory.
If it were me I would say goodbye to my apps for now and reinstall from scratch then post this problem at xda-developer if no one here has an answer about what happened. If you're worried that it might happen again back up early and often.
Is this your problem?
Sorry if this doesn't help. I'm not a developer, just another user. I haven't even had the nerve to try putting CM7 on internal memory. It runs fine for me off of a card and if it chokes I just remove the card. As you can see I always anticipate failure.

After some research I found these threads on xda-developer that might address your problem. I can't tell from the info you've given so far. They're mostly short so you should be able to see if they'll help you without having to read 25 pages or anything.
I hope you find your answer. It looks like it's probably either a card formatting issue or something to do with the kernel. Good luck.

See if you can get clockworkmod to come up by booting to recovery (hold down n key and power button for 6 seconds on startup), If it works just select backup and restore, then select restore and then select the file to restore (it should make sense when you see it). If you can't get booted to recovery try removing the sd card and booting normally then inserting the card and starting clockworkmod and doing the above. If that doesn't work you need a bootable clockworkmod card
or follow the instructions in the link in this thread

- Stock Moto, CM7
I'm waiting to have someone tell me I royally screwed the pooch on this, but my friend's Nook was doing the same thing, going to the "Touch the future of reading" screen and staying there. I have a feeling that this was due to using the overclock software built into Phiremod, because it started right after I turned the overclock on, and he turned his device off for the night (wouldn't boot the next morning). We're both running Phiremod (I set up both Nooks), so I booted his into Clockwork recovery. I went to mounts/storeage and formatted the cache then rebooted. Viola. Immediately solved the problem, I chcecked, and after the cache format, the overclock was turned off, and back to the normal 800mhz. Thoughts or ideas? Is this a viable fix, or was I just lucky? lol
