    Trouble trying to root my Nook Tablet 8GB

    I've been trying on and off for a couple weeks now to root my Nook Tablet 8GB running firmware v. 1.4.3. I've had it for about 2 years now. I guess I'm a little late to the party as far as wanting to mod it.

    I've read various tutorials on rooting and modding my NT, but nothing I try works. I simply can't get my NT to boot from the SD card!

    I found a thread on another forum (XDA maybe?) where Albert Wertz theorized that there are 4 different users of Nook Tablets -
    1) ones that could boot from the SD card just by pushing the power button,
    2) ones that boot from the SD card by pushing the power + n buttons at the same time,
    3) ones that could only boot from the SD card by attaching the USB cable to a computer,
    4) those who are locked out entirely and cannot boot from the SD card.

    I may be in that "locked out entirely" camp. But I don't want to throw in the towel just yet if that category doesn't really exist.

    Does anyone who has been in this community for a while know for sure if those of us who bought Nook Tablet 8GB late in its model life are locked out entirely?

    If I can - I'm happy to go back to firmware v. 1.4.0 to allow for sideloading. I'm also down with booting CWM so I can load a newer Android version with Google apps. I just want to move forward and not be stuck monkeying with this forever.

    Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance.

    Cheers!

    Answering my own question.....I FINALLY got something to work. The files here were able to work effectively and allowed me to boot from an SD card:

    Root for Nook Tablet 8GB (w/ Android Market) | Nook Tablet | XDA Forum

    I'm still running B&N v. 1.4.3, but now I have access to Google Play and the Android Market. And my tablet is lightning fast now!

    So I'm off to figure out what the hang up has been with CWM.

    Cheers!

    Good to see you got it rooted. Thanks for sharing the information. Shows that a 2 year old tablet can still be useful.

    The locked out entirely category is really more likely people who aren't doing it correctly but swear they are. Good job on toughing it out and getting it going.
