Two options - before doing either, make sure that in settings>security, you allow installation of non-market apps.

The stock Nook HD/HD+ doesn't have that option. If it did it would be a nice thing but a mod has to be done to enable sideloading. Or use a cumbersome "approved" method.

Thanks! I just want to get the best of my nook despite being a noob
Running stock with "enable unknown sources" aka sideloading enabled (see above) and something like Nova Launcher makes these tablets very user friendly without rooting or changing rom. Of course you can go full out but this "noob" likes it just fine with the minimal mods mentioned.

I just bought the hd+ and Sears was the best due to using a shopping portal with 6 percent back. Trust me it is the best I could do and I have been on this for hours checking prices and codes
Top Cashback says they'll give 8% back on Nook product purchases from Barnes & Noble.

Getting root gets access to the iptables a.k.a. firewall functions built into Android. Very handy if you want to control your privacy better on apps that shouldn't need to phone home.

Not really a concern of mine.

And I really don't want to deal with losing data or other issues that rooting can cause. From XDA:

Many further mods to your device depend on being rooted. But for the HD/HD+, it adds some element of danger because the user and apps have access now to /system. It is easy to change something there and if you change something there, it will reset itself on the next boot, wiping all your data. So once you are rooted, be very careful with /system. And also be very careful with installing apps that modify /system. If the app says it requires root, and you don't know why, be careful.

Only apps with root access can modify /system and apps only get root access if the user approves it because there is built-in superuser management in the CM rom. Barnes & Noble skin users might need the Superuser app for the same management capabilities. Rooting without the management or with improper management would be the no no. I can imagine there being some risk of stuff happening when users gain full permissions over an OS. It's an option.

I just had the weirdest experience. I was running CM10.1 (I think it was the 6/12 build) flashed onto the ROM. On Sunday, it rebooted itself and just kept showing the spinning CM logo. So I shut it down and turned it back on. Same spinning CM logo.

So I shut it down again and waited a few minutes. I booted it back up again, and the ORIGINAL Nook software started loading on the machine all by itself (I didn't even have the microSDHC card in slot that I used to install CM10.1). Within a few minutes, the machine had already reinstalled the original Nook software and was prompting me to go through setup.

WTF?

It's a safety back-up. I have read, If nook fails to boot 8 or so times, it reverts to stock.

How do you mod the stock so that the option appears?

Technically the option to enable unknown sources doesn't "appear" it becomes permanently enabled after doing this mod. AFAICT you can't turn it off or on like you can with a regular Android tablet. I know its semantics but it could make a difference to someone.

Has anyone received your referral reward from BN either as a referer or as a referee? I bought mine in early May, and have not got anything from BN. I suppose it will come by email.
