I have a Nook Touch and I've followed some rooting instructions and have installed apps from Android Market, but some things about it are still Nook-ish, such as the screensaver.

How can I "wipe" my Nook Touch and install a "vanilla" version on Android and thus not run into anything specific to Nook?

Reminder: this is regarding the Nook Simple Touch eInk device, not the Nook Color.

@Izzy: The second question you link to is this one. – Al E. Nov 26 '12 at 20:31
Ouch -- fail. Copied it the wrong way around I guess. I meant Gingerbread ROM for Nook Color?... To make up for it, some other helpful Q&As: Where can I find stock or custom ROMs for my Android device? plus Can I use an Android OS card on the new Nook Tablet? – Izzy Nov 26 '12 at 20:50
