Default [Q] Need help rooting a new nook v1.1.2

Hey guys,
Just got my new Nook Yesterday, and I need a working guide on rooting it.
I was following the TouchNooter thread, but it doesn't work. I think it has some thing to do with the fact that I have the new 1.1.2 fw installed.
I got to the part when I need to boot the nook, but when it does boot it says that the SD card is not formatted and offers to format it.
Please help.

TN works fine with B&N 1.1.2 firmware. I've done it twice in recent weeks.

Try rebooting without the uSD card inserted. It should take you into ADW launcher. Be aware that it can take 24 hours for the Market to function.

Can you please explain the part about rebooting without the SD card?
What's the ADW launcher?

At step 9, take the card out and follow the rest of the procedure. As you do the procedure, on-screen instructions tell you to remove the card when the screen goes dark.

Thanks !
I think I got it! It was my mistake in the dd syntax.
Do you know how I can add fonts to the reader?

Ah, you got the format uSD message on the FIRST boot, before the rooting process then? Glad you got it fixed.

I am not aware of any way to add fonts to the B&N reader, if that's what you mean.

Fonts go in the /system/fonts directory. Just copy them.

The reader selects out of six fonts.
Unless you hack the app to use a ListView, you will be limited to six fonts.
You can easily replace one of the selections by modifying Reader.apk
If you pick a font with a short name you can just binary hack replacement of the string name in resources.arsc.

If you want full freedom of choice, you have to extract and recompile the string resources.
The strings are named (note misspelling):
  • font_1_lable Caecilia
  • font_2_lable Malabar
  • font_3_lable Amasis
  • font_4_lable Gill Sans
  • font_5_lable Helvetica Neue
  • font_6_lable Trebuchet
