Welcome to the forum. Root will probably come but no telling when. The Nook Color was rooted quickly the Nook Tablet took a very long time but when it finally picked up development traction it took off. Enjoy your new Nook HD+ for what it is and if/when it gets root enjoy a whole new level of awesomeness
I just read an article on my local newspaper about the nook hd .The article is talking about the best tablet under$200. and it lists the Nook hd,+ saying that is worth it especially now that it has full Google play support. Really? Now we can have Google apps on the Nook hd without rooting?
Got myself an HD+ on Craigslist $50. Got root and CM 10.2 using leapinlars guidelines from XDA forum but I have hit the wall trying to load CM11.
And one other thing: How did I get to be a junior member ? I thought I was a senior member. OOh well, Noobs changing the rules I guess. Hey JP, Spider, just stopped by with my new Nook HD+ to show it off.
