Nook Color updated itself to 1.3?

I left my nook alone for a while and at a glance noticed that it had restarted itself. It's never done that before, but I figured I'd just let it go through the motions. It then appeared to be hanging on the rainbow nook color logo. I was planning on powering it down and powering it back on but as soon as I touched the power button the lock screen came up.

After regaining access to the unit I got a notification saying that the unit's software is up to date. I can no longer access market, and no longer have root privileges (which means I can't back stuff up with titanium before I re-flash everything).

I saw there's a nooter for 1.3 but I'm assuming that wipes everything? Before I try that, does anyone know if there's another work around that doesn't make me lose my data? Also, has the self update happened to anyone else?

You shouldn't lose your data if you nooter. Just make sure to make a backup just in case.

Thanks for the tip! I tried backing up data with titanium backup but it required root access (which I didn't have because of the update), so I ended up just putting cm7 on it.
