I did the same thing last night. There are several threads out there which talk about this "CWM boot loop" situation. I used this link at XDA by samuelhalff to just get nook booting normally:
[RECOVERY][ZIP] Nook Color Restore to stock - xda-developers
and chose number 4 (on page) to simply remove CWM and keep root. So basically downloaded the zip file to my mSD card, inserted it into nook, then from CWM chose load zip and specified the new zip file. After rebooting everything came back as before.

I think it's related to AN3.0 (3.0 is not supported by the autonootering team, it's an unofficial release... although there's no indications I've seen they are going to release an autonooter for 1.1), but when you install CWR from Rom Manager, you need to first normally reboot the nook before booting into recovery to avoid the boot loop.

Just flash the CWR removal zip to remove CWR, reflash in rom manager, then reboot and you should be able to then boot into and out of CWR to do backups/restores.

I flashed CWM and rebooted the device as indicated, but unfortunately still got locked into CWM when I tried to make a backup thru ROM manager. I think there is a compatibility issue of some sort with AN3.0, 1.1, and CWM but I'm still trying to understand it myself. I want to overclock and try flashing or sideloading some apps but feel stuck until I get my head around this stuff.

Now I cant even get it to boot into recovery no boot animation at all f#$K

It seems like there are a few different ways to get out of the boot loops and back to stock, but what would be great is:

1) If there was a way to get out of the boot loops in CWM w/o going back to stock

2) If there was a clear explanation of what caused the boot loops.

I've tried the install CWM & reboot method, and still got stuck back into CWM when I tried to back up my ROM through ROM Manager. This is with my NC on 1.1 using CWM 3.0.0.6.

take a look at this link it worked for me!

Flash back to clean stock ROM - nookDevs


Method 1: Hardware Key Combination

is different than the posts I've seen here!

Thank you so much!!! oh my god! i thought I bricked my Nook 5 minutes after getting it. accidently flashed the nooks internal memory with auto-nooter3.0 instead of the sd card like i should have by accidentally selecting the wrong drive letter.

this caused an endless error and reboot sequence. rebooting 8 times didnt do it, because i that procedure leads to the recovery file within the nooks memory, but i had overwrote this with autonooter. the only thing it did was use autonooter as the recovery file and then rooted the nook. but it still had the error on start leading to endless restarting. couldnt access the internal memory from the usb to fix it and put back the nook update.

apparently i didnt erase everything because this step saved my sweating freaked out butt!
Method 1: Hardware Key Combination

1. With the NOOKcolor powered off hold down the n button (home) and Power Button until the NOOKcolor powers on.
2. You will be prompted with a Factory Reset dialog.

Press POWER key to Exit
Press HOME key to continue

3. Press n button (home).
4. You will be prompted to confirm.

Press POWER key to Exit
Press HOME key to continue

5. Press n button (home).
6. A Clearing Data dialog will show. NOOKcolor will reboot automatically once complete.


everything is back to the original state of the nook. now i get to start over again. this time being MUCH more careful!

thank you again. and hope this post can help someone else out who may feel as stupid as i have for the past 3 hours. :-(
