Background: This may be my first post, but I have been lurking here for a couple weeks. (Great site with very helpful members BTW.) I have read the sticky's and many posts and twice through how to root. I am computer literate and know just enough Java to be dangerous. I have been using a droid x for 6 months, which is why I bought my wife a Nook Color. I would like to root the nook. She will use it mainly for games, reading library books (maybe buy a cookbook or magazine subscription), and some web surfing (tv episodes, youtube, etc.) 1. Her NC is currently on 1.0.1, so I assume it would be best to use auto nooter 2.12.25 rather than starting from 1.0 or 1.1. 2. What sd card should I use? As my wife won't be buying a ton of books, I feel a 32gb card is overkill. But I do plan on using the card for root then NC storage. Is an sdhc card alright? How important will the speed of the card be (later on)? Should I go to Walmart or Best Buy? I will probably get a usb reader with the sd card. 3. Is there any last advice before rooting? Any steps that might trip me up? I am sure I will have other questions after my NC root, like which media player to use or which games... But for now, thank you for this forum. It has helped me immensely.
