Do You Have a Nook Color and Windows 7? How About Rooting Your Nook?

Since there seems to be quite a bit of demand for new developments on the Nook Color, it looks like XDA member whgarner decided to post a guide that he found on how to root the Nook Color using Windows 7. Rooting this device will probably allow you to do a lot more with it than just its original intent. The guide is very complete (over 50 steps to follow!) and you need to have some knowledge of ADB. Freeing up Tablets seem to be the latest trend in our community, so if you are a Nook owner, check it out and free your device from its chains!

Windows 7 Sideload Instructions
Hope this helps some people – I tried to be very step-by-step about it.

Again, thank you Pokey9000, the guys and gals from the IRC channel, and everybody else for all of your hard work! 99.9% of this is an aggregation of what is already in this thread; some of it comes from nookdevs also.

You will need the following applications on your Windows 7 computer:

  • cygwin (www dot cygwin dot com)
  • Android Debug Bridge (ADB) – this comes with the android SDK
  • Android USB Drivers – this comes with the android SDK

You can find more information in the guide thread.
