Well, I fit into the NC with B&N 1.1 installed category and frankly I'm confused as to which way to go to root mine. While I deeply appreciate all the hard work that went into this project, it would be really groovy to have all the information in one place and up to date. Maybe there is such a place, but I haven't found it yet. I downloaded Auto-Nooter 3.0.0, but just don't know which instructions to use. I hope this doesn't sound like a complaint, I'm just frustrated. Also what is a Gmail/You-tube linked account? I have a Gmail account that I used to register my NC with B&N, but what does You-Tube have to do with it.
Use the instructions at xda, but add a step between 3 & 4. This step is missing from the instructions! With the Nook unplugged from the PC, power it off completely.Insert the newly created auto-nooter 3.0 SD card in Nook & then plug into the PC. The Nook should boot from the SD card & sart the rooting process. It takes a while & it will reboot when complete. Don't interrupt it.
Rico, thanks, I had not see your comprehensive instructions. As you may have read, the instructions that accompany the 2 Auto-Nooter postings on xda leave out the power off step. I have made several attempts to bring this to the attention of the community, but the authors of these postings haven't edited the procedures. I appreciate that you were diligent enough to create instructions that are complete & include some info that was not in the nookDevs instructions. The missing step at xda was an unfortunate omission & I hope the authors see fit to correct it.
I will be pointing people to your instructions in the future.
