Since 1997, you’ve been coming to BarnesandNoble.com to discuss everything from Stephen King to writing to Harry Potter. You’ve made our site more than a place to discover your next book: you’ve made it a community. But like all things internet, BN.com is growing and changing. We've said goodbye to our community message boards—but that doesn’t mean we won’t still be a place for adventurous readers to connect and discover.

Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Re: Help...I tried to get cute by messing around with Honeycomb. I think I destroyed my NC

Glad you're up again. 

 

I don't always have time to be as verbose in every post as I can be the first time I post instructions, and many other folks can't either - it's worth digging around for "when was the first time he tried 'splainin' that?" as a rule of thumb. 

 

The day I got my NC, I decided I wanted Froyo installed on the internal memory.  I was down hard for a couple of days while I figured out what to do, having blown the device out in the attempt. 

 

To this day, my recovery image is something really screwy - I recover to stock, and I get a rooted and "OS Unknown" release of the firmware booting -- but it does boot :smileyhappy:   

 

One big takehome:  you now have an SD card with Clockwork Recovery installed on it.  You can always use that to click your heels and go back to Kansas.  You can also use it to make an image style backup of your OS.  I've had great luck restoring saved CWR backups from 1.1 / 1.1 rooted and getting them to boot again.

 

So far, not so much luck restoring 1.2.  But I think that's because my CWR card needs to be rebuilt.
