Tip & How-To about Barnes & Noble Nook Tablet

How to hard reset nook device with the help of nook support?

There are several of 'ideas' on how to do this. We think these the two ideal ways:


Method #1

Use this if you haven't rooted your nook.
·Make a press on Settings on the touchpad, then Device, and then 'Unregister your Nook'
·Below that make a press on 'reset to factory settings' and confirm
·It should reboot and be restored to the new firmware that you have installed.

Method #2

Use this to go back to the firmware the nook was shipped with (use this if rooted)
This will restore it to the similar exact path you got it from the store. It's parallel of restoring your computer with your installations disks.
·You need to turn off your device by holding down the Power button.
·With it off, press and hold the power button unless you don't see screen flickers black for a moment then continue to hold it for approx. 15 seconds. You will not see anything happen at this point- but the animated arrows will avoid typically.
·Repeat the above step 6 more times in a row. Yes, six is the sorcery number that utters the Nook to do a restore.
·Now make a press on Power button once so that you can turn on the device.
·The touch screen will go back with a description of what it's doing. You may need to wait few minutes- don't stop it.
·To update the newest software version, make a press on 'My Library' button. While in the 'My B&N Library' area tap 'Check for new B&N content'. It will get the new firmware and begin updating the fresh software again. For more help, you can ring up a Nook Customer Service.

would rooting my tablet effect any previously downloaded or saved file?


Generally speaking, it will not. But it is always recommended that you make a hard backup of all the data and files saved just in case any emergency.

Here is the safest way to unlock an Android device without voiding its manufacture warranty or any supported services.

if i try to root the cruz ereader r101 and it doesn't work, can i get it back to working with original firmware?


Yes. Flashing the ROM does the same thing as updating your firmware. You are simply updating your firmware to one that isn't the original. All you do is load up the file from the velocity website onto your SD card and flash and you will be back at the standard ROM.
I suggest Macho ROM or JGM if you want the android market. Both run overclocked if you so choose which is much faster. JGM also has a vanilla rom (and there is and improved vanilla rom) which gives the tablet bare-bones applications if you want it to be just a reader. I would follow the method for flashing jgm. It lays out how to set up app2sd and all that.
4shared.com allows you to download apps that are not found in the market or whatever after you have rooted. Simply search the name of the app and put .apk at the end. Be careful as you can get malware from this. This method breaks copyright laws as all apps on it are offered for free and I only suggest it to download apps that are free on the market...
