Member Indirect of the tabletroms elite team whom is 16 years old has managed to work with our very own Albert Wertz to root the Barnes and Noble Nook Tablet.
Quoted from member Indirect:
I have gotten zergRush to work on the nook tablet as well as created a batch script for you to run to allow you to root your tablet. This does NOT unlock the bootloader software/hardware checks this is just so you can remove whatever unnecessary crap you wish to get the **** off your device.
You need drivers first:
here is an app to pull up usb debugging menu
How to get adb debugging enabled:
Download this or any apk, the attached one is wifi tether just so you can check root and whatnot. Now when it brings to you the menu to allow install from unknown sources, click “development” and then check usb debugging *there are two, just check both.* also dont forget to uncheck the auto-mount.
You can now gain access to adb *from what I gather, not entirely sure as my mom won’t let me mess with her nook tablet.
If you already did this then just grab z4root.apk and when it tells you to enable usb debugging, it should pull up the menu for it.
Changelog: v1.0: Official release v.75: Updated to install SU and superuser.apk v.5: Initial release
