    honestly, if you stick the recovery rom on another sd card and then use Root sd card to boot to CWM, then restore to recovery rom, would be easier...

    I just purchased (3/10) the nook tablet 8gb. Tried everything so far and it just does not boot form the SD, So, I think Albert your right on with your assessment. Its just as well as I think the new ASUS will be the best bet.

    Update: 3/20/2012: There is a root that is released for the 8gb nook Tablet on XDA, the problem is there is no unroot and BN left the boot signatures the same for the devices. This means that it will not block hacks for the 16gb NT on the 8GB NT. This means it is very easy to brick your tablet by using wrong hacks and not being able to recover. The only thing I recommend is the CM7 rom cards for SD. It is the safest thing. I DO NOT RECOMMEND ROOTING THE ONBOARD SD FOR THE 8GB NOOT TABLET. You have been warned.

    This does not currently apply to the 16gb NT...

    UPDATE: Barnes and Noble made the 8gb with the same boot signature as the 16gb, but it has half the ram and half the Hard drive. This means that you can use the acclaim update to flash back to 1.4.0, but this will BRICK you Tablet. Barnes and Noble is Not taking proper protocol when making devices. They are manufacturing multiple variations with the same signatures. Hacks and Roms applied to the 16GB may brick the 8GB!!!

    I think the video was filmed on a whim because I got a text and I wanted to investigate what methods we had currently while i was there hacking someone else's tablet. I also mention that hackers would find a workaround for it. However, current methods make the device inaccessible, You have shared very useful links, I really found helpful for me.
