It's a good point all. Doesn't make sense to have to install the Nook software on the NT in order to see your Library. Anyone looking at that?

Yeah I see that I can still get to my books.I was just seeing if there was a way to get the book on the ADW home

You can now use the latest version of ES file explorer for that purpose but if you want to manage your shortcuts then download ES Bookmark Manager.

Root Nook Tablet 1.4.2 using Ubuntu Linux
This worked great with 1.4.2. Thank you very much.

I was helping a friend with her NT and wasn't sure how easy it would be to do this with Ubuntu Linux. Piece of cake. For Linux users: (feel free to include in original post)

1- Download the SD_ROOT_NT16gbV4_6.zip from original post
2- extract the NT16gbV4_6 image file.img file only, you don't need all the other Windows garbage
3-rename the file to get rid of the spaces, I renamed it NT16gbV4_6.img
4-fire up the terminal and CD to the directory your file is in, mine was in the Downloads so (case sensitive of course)

Code:
cd Downloads
5- find out what drive is your sd card, type in

Code:
mount
note all the mounted drives, then plug the sd card in your computer (I use a usb stick card reader), and type

Code:
mount
see which was added and ignore the number. Mine was sdb1 (sdb). Yours maybe sdc or whatever. Please use your head, you don't want to erase your computers hard drive by choosing the wrong drive.

6- while the sd card is plugged in, type in the terminal

Code:
dd if=NT16gbV4_6.img of=/dev/sdb
assuming that you are already in the directory your file is in, you have renamed the file as I did, and your sd card is sdb. Make any changes accordingly and press enter. It took about 2-3 minutes for the img file to be written.

7-then follow the instruction in the original post.

Oh and is it also necessary to install a OTA blocker? If so, why? Just being pre cautious. Thanks in advance

why? because if you don't do it when B&n release the next update you will get it and so root and most of your apps will be broken.
Advice install CWM and make a backup once you finish setting up your girlfriend's NT so if something happens in a future and you need to revert back to what you had you will be able to.
Sideload CMW app and other apps via ADB (don't know if it works but it should though) you may want to edit your build.prop to make google play think your gf's NT is a nexus S or droid 3 so you can see more apps in there. Check here

HI
Does this work for NT 8GB with 1.4.2
Just bought NT8 with firmware 1.4.2
I followed the instruction and i have checked all files are on SD card
however I cant seem to boot either with usb cable, power and N button or power button alone.
Nothing comes up the screen just keep blank.
When I remove the sd card it boot up again.
I tried with 4 different sd cards.
Am I missing something ?

Thanks

please provide a step by step of your process...

Take sd card, put in nook, unmount and erase
plug in usb to mount to pc
unpack file to desktop
run exe
chose sd image
chose external sd on nook (not mynook drive)
write
unplug usb and turn off
pop sd out and in, plug in usb, leave alone.
let us know what happens.

The files work, they have been tested. Most of the time, if they dont work, its user error.
