    [Q and A] Root w/ Video Instructions, NEW Root PATCH ADB Hijack[12/31/11

    The below Root process is out dated. You can still follow these instructions, but there is an updated process Listed here using your SD card that does not require driver installation. If you cant figure out the instructions, I have even provided a low cost option of buying an SD card with the root on it, then you can root, and reformat the card to gain the functionality of the SD card back. Check it out.

    Part of the reason I shoot my videos is to help all those not so technically inclined to root easier and not have so many questions. With this thread in the general section, everyone can ask a question here and we can all help answer questions for you all.

    update 12/30/11:Another Nook Tablet Troubleshooting Root Video and more by Albert Wertz

    Root process:
    1. Turn on tablet
    2. Register, turn off wifi
    3. Check version number. if 1.4.0 proceed to root and OTA block,,, If 1.4.1- use sdcard flash back to 1.4.0 before proceeding to root
    4. either turn on wifi long enough to enable debugging or just sideload app with usb. turn off wifi again.
    5. follow part 1 video
    6. follow part 2 video
    7. enable wifi and download titanium backup and dropbox, download files through dropbox, turn off wifi
    8. Follow OTA Block Video
    9. move files from dropbox to titanium backup folder and restore
    10. verify software version number changed to 9.9.9
    11. Enable Wifi, Profit! you are protected from OTA patches
    12. Stay in touch with your root developer's thread and use NEW Hijack ADB app to update your root as the developers release new root patches.

    Note: If you are worried about time taken after downloading titanium backup, you can use titanium backup to freeze devicemanager2.3.4.apk. this will block OTA aswell.

    Albert first let me say a BIG thank you to you and Indirect's great work and videos. In your latest video on ADB Hijacking you say that you are using the latest Zergy file that had just been updated that day (12/30 I believe) Where is the "latest" Zergy zip file at? Also on the XDA developer thread you mention about copying over an updated .bat file to the Zergy folder. My question is if you download the "latest" Zergy file do I still need to copy and paste the new .bat file to my extracted zergy folder? Thank you for you help and again thank for showing us the way to unlocking our tablets.
