Default [Q] NT 8GB 1.4.2 downgrade to 1.4.0 possible?

Title says it all. Is there a way to downgrade a Nook Tablet from 1.4.2 to 1.4.0?

I have successfully rooted it, yet I am unable to get the "home catcher apk" installed since I can't get the "Unknown Sources" (Allow installation of non-Market applications) to stick.

Thank you in advance!

DONATE TO ME
I haven't seen a way to get it to 1.4.0. Do not flash the 1.4.0. acclaim update though it will brick the device.

Any ideas on getting "Unknown Sources" (Allow installation of non-Market applications) to stick?

I am told that:

Open NT Hidden settings. Click on HACKS. Click on UNKNOWN SOURCES HACK. Bingo DONE! I had to reboot to get it to take effect but I was able to install homecatcher.apk. AWESOMENESS ENSUES! Go ahead and click on the OTA blocker too. Thanks guys for this great thread and hopefully I've added a small part to it.
