==========================================================================================================

Since there are a lot of questions/queries about rooting etc., here goes (copied from XDA):

1. What is rooting and why is it needed? - Rooting is the process of granting a user admin rights on the device. B&N (as well as every other vendor) blocks you from doing this for your own protection (and so they can charge you for a lot of things). Usually, you should not need this, but sometimes you may. For the B&N HD/HD+, you can do almost everything without rooting. Also, B&N has a catch - if you (or one of your apps) do modify the contents of certain system folders (that can only be done with root access), the device reverts to B&N stock (i.e. factory) settings automatically and wipes out all your modifications. So, for the HD & HD+, unless you know what you are doing and really need root rights, I suggest that you stay away from rooting.

2. What is side-loading? - For the longest time, B&N would let you purchase/download apps only from their own app store. Not only were all apps not available, some were priced higher than the Google Play store. Since OS update v2.1 on the device, B&N now lets you access the Google Play store, so you can get all the apps that everyone with an Android device can get - at the same price. Still, there are some apps that Google Play does not offer based on device compatibility (Whatsapp messenger, for example) that you can load by putting special (.apk) files on an SD Card and then "side-loading" them to the device from the card. If you are a newbie, you should be able to enjoy life with what's in the Google Play store.

3. What is "enable unknown sources"? - As explained in #2, the tablet only lets you get apps from the B&N store or the Google Play store. If you want to download apps from elsewhere (say the Amazon App Store), you need to "enable apps to load from unknown sources". This is usually done via a setting in the "Settings" screens. Unfortunately, B&N has blocked this screen so you cannot get the Amazon App Store on your device easily. To do this, you must do something "extra" that will "enable apps from unknown sources". Again, unless you desperately need an app from somewhere else, you won't need this.

4. I've read the above and decided that I want to root OR to enable unknown sources. What's the easiest way to do this? - There are several ways to achieve this. I thought that the steps mentioned in this thread (thanks to user leapinlar) [xda-developers.com] were the easiest. All you need is the first post in there and in there you are going to need step #1 (that describes how to load anything from the subsequent steps), step #2 (if you need root access) and step #3 (if you need the unknown sources enabled). While step #1 is mandatory to do anything else, you can do #2 or #3 or both.

5. I've read the above and decided that I want to root, enable unknown sources, install CyanogenMod 10.1 - I want it all. What's the easiest way to do this? - Again, several ways to achieve this. Just visit this thread [xda-developers.com] and follow the instructions - alternatively, there's a tutorial link below too. Remember, what you are doing is similar to buying a new car and then modding it - so better know what you are doing.

***[NOOK HD/HD+] Installing CyanogenMod 10.1 for Dummies [xda-developers.com] THIS IS THE TUTORIAL YOU'RE LOOKING FOR***




ANDROID JELLYBEAN INSTALL LINK

Win32 Disk imager to write the bootable SD card img file
http://sourceforge.net/projects/win32diskimager/

Have JB working off my SD card only mode - meaning the original ROM is NOT Rooted (using cm-10.1-20130611-UNOFFICIAL-ovation ROM) . Install for SD-Internal memory or full install are listed on the link. Only missing item on the XDA site is the Win32 disk imager to write the boot SD card img file. Basically..

1. download the CM10 rom and Google Apps to the Nook HD+ using the Nook ROM (the files will be in the /downloads folder)
2. download the SD card img file to your computer
3. use Win32 disk imager to write to the SD card (4gb minimum). The card will only show about 120 megs.
4. completely turn off the Nook (hold power until menu comes on)
5. insert SD card. Turn on Nook. (if you boot into Nook original ROM, try completely turning off, and hold volume +, and power at the same time)
6. see cyanogen mod logo, wait until Clock Work Mod screen comes on.
7. follow the rest of the steps on XDA.

Not sure, but Mother's day deal had the coupon and then the same price was listed on the website making the coupon unnecessary.

got 5 HD+ last time at $90 each. I gave 4 away for mothers day (mom, maternal and paternal grandmothers, sister) and kept one for myself. i played with it for a few days but since then its just been sitting there. I barely do anything with it. its too big for reading in bed. i've dropped it on my face one too many times. at least i was able to side load apps and try out different apps. the screen is gorgeous though. my only issue with it is that it gets pretty hot at the bottom corner where the hole is. i was watching a movie and left it on my table and when i picked it up i almost dropped it it was so hot.

there is a free month membership from barnes and noble. the only problem is you have to buy one book with it. I found a kids book for $2 and activated my membership online instantly. Then used the coupon like a normal member
