Easily Root Your Nook Tablet With An SD Card

Since the latest 1.41 update from December, rooting the Barnes & Noble Nook Tablet has gotten a lot harder – you had to block the update or, if you had already applied it, restore to the previous 1.40 version before it was possible to gain root access. However, some people have been working on directly rooting the 1.41 version, and even come up with a method to root the Nook Tablet by booting from the SD card.

With help from Goncezilla, forum member Indirect has been able to “throw together” some files – copy them to a properly formatted SD card, insert it into the Nook Tablet, turn it on, and you should directly boot into CWM. From there, just flash a ZIP and you’ll get root plus all the Google Apps you’d expect from a real Android device.

Sounds easy enough? Visit the forum thread for full instructions and download links.
