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.

Sunday Debate: Are Smaller Bezels Better or Worth It?

Bezels have been getting smaller and smaller as the years go by, and while devices from 2011 needed to trim some fat, there is no absolute rule that says that smaller bezels, after a happy medium, are beneficial to a phone. Part of this is that, with today’s current smartphone paradigms, an absolute lack of bezels does not produce an inherently better user experience.   With each technological advancement come limitations and compromises of some sort, and bezels are not...
