More detail below, but straight to the question - who here was rooted when 1.1.0 came out, did not apply the tweak to stop the update, and actually had 1.1.0 OTA pushed out on top of rooted 1.0.1?
I rooted at 1.0.0. after seeing a YouTube video of a rooted device. Unfortunately I just got everything the way I liked it rooted and 1.0.1 was pushed out two days later and cratered my nook. Not to worry though, just did the two-step factory reset documented online and everything worked perfect again, all my books were available again.
After installing 1.0.1 I rooted again, then after signing into market, I could see all the apps I had purchased (both on phone and on NC) and downloaded those. So all I really lost was content I have copied over (files and presentations - which I had a copy of on PC), and free apps that I loaded, I just had to reload those.
I DID NOT apply the tweak to stop 1.1.0 from applying. Figured I'd ride the update wave, see what happened. It was never pushed to my system, and I was on wireless every day. I wondered if maybe BN did some check to see if you were rooted and didn't push the update?
I have high-speed FIOS and a good wireless N router, even like to sit up at BN with my nook and coffee, so I'm sure the issue wasn't my connection.
