We have brought you the guides on how to install Android 3.0 Honeycomb or Android 2.2 Froyo on your Nook color already. But sometimes it can happen because of some miss followed step or some other misconfiguration things can go wrong, and your Nook Color can get bricked. Or it might get bricked due to some other reason not mentioned above. If this is the case you can easily restore it to factory default settings by following our step-by-step guide that we describe here.

First of all you need to have Android SDK installed and running. Furthermore you need Original Factory Boot Image and Original System Boot Image.

After fulfilling the above requirements use the following procedure to restore your bricked Nook Color to the factory default settings:

Step 1: Extract the above mentioned images to the root of your SD card.

Step 2: Attached the Nook Color to your PC via USB port.

Step 3: Now navigate to your Android SDK Folder and run ADB.

Step 4: Go to ADB Shell and type the below mentioned commands

dd if=/sdcard/boot.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p1
dd if=/sdcard/system.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p5

  • Nook Color’s Boot Image
  • Nook Color’s System Image
  • Nook Color’s Original Partition Structure

Step 5: Now just type ‘adb reboot’ in the shell to reboot your Nook Color into original factory settings.
