Permanent Root for the Nook HD and HD+, Unofficial CM10 for the HD+
While the Kindle Fire HD and Google Nexus 7 made quite the splash upon release, the launch of Barnes & Noble’s latest tablets was a bit less bombastic. That didn’t stop developers from noticing and hacking it. Now, the Nook HD and Nook HD+ have root.
XDA Senior Member verygreen has done a lot of work for the latest tablets from Barnes & Noble, starting with root and ending with a very early build of CM10. The root process is for both Windows and Linux. It’s a very easy, one-click solution. Users simply download the package, unzip it, and then run the applicable script. The only known issue is that superuser.apk doesn’t install properly. However, they can easily be fixed by installing your favorite Super User app from the Play Store.
The CM10 installation is rough, as you would expect from an early build. It’s installed on the SD Card, and if you want it, you have to compile it yourself. Thankfully, verygreen gives instructions on how to do it. It’s very much a test build, and is in no way a daily driver. However, verygreen is asking for input from anyone who tests it, as the build is still very much in development.
