I am reposting this here for people who may not follow the General Discussions forum. I've been able to root the 8GB version of the Nook Tablet based bauwks's 2nduboot hack. Since I am a new user I was unable to post in this section; instead I posted instructions and files in this thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1529553
. Any questions or comments are welcome.
