    It is GB 2.3; no ICS yet.
    Is the GB on the N2A Card rooted?

    It should be or at least have a check box for root access. I haven't looked at what N2A is offering in a while but they had been using CyanogenMod. CyanogenMod was previously rooted by default but I believe they changed this due to a request by Google. Going forward with new versions CyanogenMod will not be rooted by default but can the can be changed by simply checking or unchecking a box on settings.

    All that being said, I am pretty sure N2A card are basically standard CyanogenMod 7 set to root access by default.

    Actually come to think of it, I believe you had a choice on the N2A website for either CM or MIUI. In any case, you should have root access no matter what you choose.

    N2A is only selling CM7 cards now and they are rooted.

    I particularly like the fact that it's a dual boot mSD. Putting that little card in and out of a Nook is a real pain.

    You know you can do the same thing to the Nook Color too right?

    That's the ultimate plan, but it seems the longer I wait the better my options get. If I wait long enough I'll be able to quadruple boot to stock, CM7, CM9, and Jellybean.:rolleyes: My biggest problem is I'm too happy with my rooted nooted NOOKcolor. It does everything I want it to, and the old, "If it's not broke, don't fix it." thing keeps coming to mind.:cool:

    That's a really good price on a 16gb Nook Tablet. --although it is refurbished. Just remember--Fry's is always a miserable experience trying to return anything.

    But isn't $49 for a bootable Micro SD root card a bit steep?
