Hey guys! First timer here on the forums. I really appreciate all the knowledge here! I have the latest Nook Glowlight model and was thinking about rooting it. BeforeI attempt it I just wanted everyone's opinion. Is it worth it? What are the capabilities and what all can it run? I appreciate everyone's feedback in advance, like I said I just want to make sure it would be worth it before I commit to the root process since it looks pretty involved. Thanks!

Truth is you can do it in 15 minutes if you follow the GREAT step-by-step in the first post. However, I could never do it on Windows 7 but 8 worked for me. I can now surf the web on Opera Mini, read PDF magazines, access my Kindle library and even use WhatsApp.

By the way, I found the Advanced IP Scanner program very useful to find my Nook's IP as my router and Windows 8 have no network map capabilities. Good luck!

thanks bud for the quick response, im pretty confident in rooting but not too sure about what will happen after. will i be able to retain the original nook os after i have rooted, my sole purpose is to utilize the 2gb storage reserved for nook content so im not planning to mess up the actual operation of the tablet, like the backlight function and etc.

just 1 more question if it's okay, how do i go about unlocking the locked storage, must i download additional application or it will be shown once i plug it into the desktop?

I personally don't know off the top of my head how to do it, but if you'll read very carefully through this entire thread, I believe there are instructions somewhere in here.

I have a Nook Glowlight with sw version 1.3.1. I'm trying to root it to install a proper reader software that shows all Unicode ranges for fonts embedded into EPUB files, because the Nook Reader shows squares for some characters in my books, so the device in itself is completely unusable for me.

I followed this process on win7 and 8.1. On both I'm stuck at "Waiting for bootloader" in omaplink. The small OMAP window shows the increase in attached drives, but that's it.
The driver was installed with Have Disk selection. On win7 the device driver dialog then stated "Motorola Flash Interface" (I have a Moto G phone, which had been connected...), on 8.1 it was OMAP3630 (phone never connected).

Do you have some tips or pointers what to look for? Do I need a different set of files for version 1.3.1?
