My nook recently became unresponsive, so I followed the instructions I read here - remove battery, wait, put back together, plug in and charge. It worked that afternoon, and the following day.
Then it happened again. I thought it might have been from the cold; I had just carried it outside for somewhere around 10 minutes. I didn't think it would have run out of charge, since I had charged it overnight and was just using it 10 minutes earlier. So I let it rest overnight, hoping that it would warm up and start working the following day.
But it didn't. So I removed the battery again, waited, popped it back together and charged again. When it comes to, the top screen says "Installing Software Update," "do not turn off," etc., and the bottom says "Restoring to Factory Fallback," black screen with white letters. So I wait, let it do its thing overnight.
The following morning (today), I wake up to find it in the exact same position. The white bar beneath "Restoring to Factory Fallback" has not moved. Also, the little orange "charging" light has gone off. I've tried searching the discussions here, but I wasn't able to find anything similar.
So, does anyone know what's going on here? Is there a way to end this waiting game and return to my reading?

It looked like it had 3/4 charge before it died, so I'm not sure if that's the problem. Even if it is, I'm fine with charging it every night, as long as I can use it.
