Nook Color Last Ditch Effort For Bricked Devices

Stuff happens, and sometimes even the mightiest of devices can have a bad day. And for those, there is some troubleshooting to do. In most cases, it’s a soft brick, and users get stuck in the splash screen or boot loop. These problems are easily fixed with a simple ROM re-flash or use some other simple restore tool. However, it sometimes gets a lot worse than that. Nothing puts the lump of panic into a user’s stomach more than hitting the power button and having nothing show up. This is a difficult situation and usually entails a trip to the retailer from which the device was purchased with a story of how it broke.

For the Barnes & Noble Nook Color, there is now one more step before driving defeated to your local retailer. XDA Forum Member soshite, with the help of others, has released a guide that will help get your Nook Color unbricked and back to working order. The method covers many bases, including what to do if your Nook Color doesn’t turn on whatsoever. It also runs the user through the process of making a bootable ClockworkMod Recovery SD card, restoring partitions using the *nix dd command, and even down to what do with the fabulous tools once you have them. The guide is a pretty long, but even for those with working devices, it’d be a good idea to check it out and get some of these files should the need ever arise.

For more information, the full method, all the download links and more, hit up the original thread.
