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

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

(Full install - overwrites your original ROM) http://forum.xda-developers.com/s...?t=2263553

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.

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.
