Hello,

My wife would like to sell her rooted nook color to her colleague. Can My wife's email and other personal info be deleted? Can the new owner then add her personal info and be up and running? How do we accomplish this goal?

Thank you,
Jim

If it's rooted you should be able to wipe it clean. Not too knowledgeable on the Nook, I'd say there should be a way to clear all user data.

If it's rooted, you can either restore it to unrooted factory or just wipe the data.

Restore to factory:

Wipe data:
1. From the Home menu, tap Settings.
2. Tap Device.
3. Tap Unregister.
4. After unregistration completes, tap Device.
5. Tap Reset to factory settings.

THIS^ wife had to do it when the "update" hit..hers didnt go through right and she basically had to what amounted to reformatting the whole nook...took her about 2 hours on the phone with their tech guy...it worked she did get everything back but she also was starting from a "blank slate" again. But reset to factory SHOULD do it... I am strongly thinking of getting a Nook Color but with the nook Color 2 being talked of, the levovo A1, and the new kindle coming out im gonna have to weigh my options.
