If you cant figure out how to get these files to work, or you just want another SD card, as a service I provide SD cards with these files on them.
I have to pay to host these files. Donations are greatly appreciated.

ROOT through SD card doesn’t require custom Drivers! You are still responsible for following root process to achieve root. Warning- Always make backups of your tablet. I am not responsible if you mess this up or brick your tablet. You do this at your own risk! Rooting unlocks your tablet. This means it bypasses several security blocks and allows you to mess up your tablet as well as enhance it. If you follow everything exactly you should be fine. If you deviate and go into something else, be warned.
DO NOT MIRROR these files.
This process is heavily dependent on the work being done here plus additions of my own!
Thanks to:Indirect, Loglud, ChainsDD, Bauwkz, Nemith, Goncezilla, Brianf21, AdamOutler, Meghd00t, AND Albert Wertz (for his work here and building on others work)
And anyone I have missed, please PM me.
Computer required to make SD card. No Computer Required to Use SD Card for Root and CWM depending on the variation of NT you have. There is one variation that does require a USB connection to enter CWM. You can thank barnes and noble for poor quality control.
***Disclaimer You do this at your own risk, Use your head, if you are not comfortable with this, dont do it. Rooting nulls your warranty if you try and return a rooted device, they and I will laugh at you. Unroot it before returning. This modifies the onboard Rom, So root will be on your tablet after using Root SD card.***
Windows required; mac and linux users: just extract the img file from the downloaded file and mount it to an sd card. its that simple. If you dont know how to mount an IMG file to your SD card... Google it.

Albert, this is an addendum to an earlier reply re: problems with my Nook Tablet root. Another issue I am noticing is the refusal of the Unknown Sources box to stay checked. Given the several problems I am having, I am wondering if a restore and re-root is in order. My Nook seemed to act up after I restored my apps with TiBackup, but it may be unrelated. Anyway, if you have a chance to ponder this, thanks for your thoughts.
turn off, turn on, open nt hidden settings, click unknown hack, wait 15 seconds., now check to see if it is checked. it should be. are you using NTV4_5 hack? if using 4_4, you need to download new 4_5 hack for this to work.
Albert, I rooted on the 14th/15th and was very successful. I followed the installation instructions that came with the files. My only question is that when I go to "unknown sources hack" it will not let me check it. When I press it I get a message bar at the top that says "NT Hidden Settings has been granted Superuser permissions". My wife has not had trouble loading apps from other sources, so I guess there isn't a problem. I was just curious what you thought or if this has been seen before.
Albert, I did everythingyou said to root but when i turned the nook back on with the sd card it went right to do you want to restore factory settings??? Did I forget to do something??
I downloaded the file to make the sd card. I have a nook tablet running 1.4.1. Now it says it should be a 62.07MB file, I keep getting after the download 62 mb only file. I followed the instructions and it wont boot to the card. Do I have to restore the nook to factory settings first? It does have sided loads apps from when it had 1.4.0 before the update. Does it make a difference that the file I downloaded is 62 mb not 62.07 mb? thx
I want to thank you for your terrific work. I purchased your SD card and was able to root my NT easily. I then saw that you created the 4.5 version, so I took a stab at creating a new SD card and then went through the whole process again. Success! Thanks so much to all the folks who helped you do this!
I was out of town and just got back in. Links have been temporarily disabled due to reworking of the image files. Will post when back up. Thanks for your cooperation!
