    Gosh I dunno what's got into those xda guys. This one took 'em almost a whole 24 hours.

    All the credit goes to the people over at xda-developers who somehow magically put this together in no time at all. I'm just passing it on.

    See ManualNooter 4.4.27 (For Stock 1.2) - xda-developers for details. It's a ManualNooter process, so no autonooter yet. Just a wee bit more complicated, but follow the instructions and there shouldn't be any trouble.

    this is great news. I foolishly depended on the stock update. For some reason I cannot fathom, I imagined it would provide some of the functionality I wanted...

    Top of my "want"-list had a messenger, so I am not too impressed with the update. Of course I managed to update before realizing that rolling back is not trivial. You can NOT downgrade by placing version 1.1 in the root of the NC, and I have of yet been unwilling to flash the 1.0 images available (not really sure it would make much difference in terms of functionality).


    works like a charm, though Zaem wouldn't run apk files but IOexplorer from store wasn't as picky. Really easy to implement and no reboot issues. Includes all the essentials. I can only recommend this if you have a stock 1.2 NC.

    I don't have the experience needed. Must wait for auto-nooter.

    I wouldn't be surprised to see it today. If not, it probably wont be much longer than that.

    I have time and a pc Sunday finally to root mine and my friend nook. We both have 1.1.0. Should I just use 3.0 autonoter or it's worth it to update to 1.2 and go from there with the new manual.How is you tube and flush?

    Nook Color 1.1 Rooted
    So Rico, do we know what the procedure will be for those of us that are Autonooted 3.0 on 1.1? I read the instructions, but it just says to start with a stock NC updated to 1.2, so do we apply the new 1.2 update over the top of the 1.1 rooted or do we unroot first and return to stock 1.1 before upgrading to 1.2. Just want to be clear before I hose the whole thing. I will probably wait for the auto rooter anyway, but the question still stands.

    You'll probably want to restore back to a stock nook first then update to 1.2 then root again. Though installing 1.2 over your current root will break root it will not install fresh leaving some bits working sand not others which may cause problems when you go to root 1.2.

    Total Newb to this stuff, some questions from you guys to help me out please.

    Present situation is NC with update to 1.2 and using CM7 (7.0.0) from an SD card. Working okay but as I am becoming comfortable with CM7 getting ready to make the plunge to root the NC.

    ***********************

    First is there something that I can use to first backup my NC stock so that if necessary I can put the info on SD card and return it to 1.2 as it is now?

    What OS does the above manual nooter install, or do you pick one as part of the process?

    Does this process leave the original NC 1.2 on the Nook so that to return to stock it is just a matter of changing some internal boot pointer or whatever?

    What is CVM?

    After rooted can I simple hook up to PC with USB and place or delete files as I can now. This is one of the things that are frustrating with booting from SD card. Need to use something like MyPhoneExplorer to access the card

    I have also read some people are set up as a dula boot and can choose either stock or rooted is this possible?

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    @goldberry:

    The only way to backup a non-rooted 1.2 would be to use CWR on an SD card (that should work)

    This nooter just opens the root to 1.2. So the OS would be FROYO.

    There is a difference between rooting and a custom ROM....Rooting is just granting you access to manipulate the current OS installed. Where CM7 (and the others) completely remove the default OS and install theirs.

    If you wanted to 'unroot', you would have to strip it back to barebones version 1.0.0 or 1.0.1 (as we don't have stock images for the 1.1 or 1.2 at this time)

    Yes, after rooting, when you plug in your USB to your PC, you should see two drives (1 is the internal memory, the 2nd will be your SD card, if inserted)

    Dual booting is possible, with caveats. Check the thread called Dual Boot Discussions in the tech section for more information.

    Yeah, get a cheap sd card 1-2 gb. I had one laying around from something. Always good for restoring back to stock 1.2. Personally, I do not see a need for a back up of non-rooted stock version.
