    I have a NC on the way and I am a little confused about the registration procedure.
    I am going to root and ROM it.
    I have read in the instructions for some custom ROM's that you register it first, then it immediately gives instructions on how to unregister it but doesn't say if this is necessary.
    My question is do I need to register it if I am going to put a custom ROM on it and then just use the nook app? and if so do I register, turn right around and unregister it, then root and flash ROM, then re-register. Or do I just get it add the ROM and add the nook app.

    It only takes a couple minutes to register...and it sets your serial number to your B&N account.

    After you register, you can run any custom ROM's you want.

    The comments you see about unregistering the device before you root is in case you were NOT the original owner. I know it's not clear, but a registered device IS required before root if you are planning to stay on the stock B&N software, otherwise the device will not connect to your B&N account and you won't be able to purchase books from B&N and won't have access to already purchased books.

    However, if you are going to root just so you can load a custom (non B&N rom - 1.0.0, 1.0.1, 1.1.0) then you can skip the registration because you're not going have the B&N software. Once on a custom ROM you can download the Nook app from the market and connect that way.

    That is what I thought but I wanted to make sure. Now I just have to pick which ROM.
