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

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.

16gb hd+. BN sent out a little coupon book with a $90 off coupon inside a few weeks before mothers day week. I had to go through my "to be trashed" pile to find it. The coupons weren't supposed to take an extra 90 off but there was a slight glitch that allowed them to for a short time. i remember there was a teacher one too but i think only 1 or 2 people reportedly were able to do it instore.



my mom and sister are using theirs for netflix, reading, checking email and general browsing. my nans are using them as ereaders. i would have been better off trying for the radioshack deal for theirs but at least they have something to play around with.

Is the microsd slower or faster then the internal memory...or should i say, is the 32gb worth it or not? My wife has the 32gb Nexus 7 ...which is about perfect...you can load a few movies, lot of pictures, tons of apps. Just not sure you need it when you could pop in a 64gb micro sd...

Some microsd cards are significantly slower. It seems the performance is all over the map, regardless of the class rating. Here's a short review that explains it in more detail: http://thewirecutter.com/reviews/...rosd-card/

Given the price difference of only $20, I'd go for the 32GB myself and avoid the hassle of trying to find a good micro sd card.

Darn it, father-in law just requested a basic tablet (not 7inch). We are here for Memorial Day so had purchased the HD+ for $200 at target. I'm hoping its going to be a national price that target honors. $55 would be a nice refund!
