So lets pretend I unrooted my nook and burned the image into my sd card for the new root. I put in the sd card in my nook, and turn it on, and then its rooted just like that?
Did you do this to your nook? What are the chances of bricking my nook? Also I have an 8gb nook tablet...this root you are telling me to do works for it right?
Sorry for all the questions but I want to take extra precautions not to brick my nook. And thank you so much for your help!
You can keep your internal rooted stock rom if you want, I was just suggesting you could use the repart image which deletes your partition and rewrites stock 1.4.2 right out of the box. This blocks over the air updates, so your nook won't update to 1.4.3 (you don't need it anyways because it only blocked rooting).
When you put the repart image SD card into your NT it will show a screen saying "Installing New Software" then a green checkmark will appear. Take your SD card out and it will start to Install New Software. Once it's done you'll have a fresh out of the box Nook! (kinda)
Rooting is simply the process of giving a device "administrator privileges" or root access to change all files. The new ROMs come pre-rooted so you don't need to root your device at all. When using the SDC CM10.1 image it will create the 4 partitions on the SD card for you (and you expand them later for more app space.)
When you write the CM10.1 image file to your SD card then put it in your nook. It will boot Cyanoboot and will start "SDC Boot" which will boot your ROM. There is a 0.01 % of you bricking your device during this process, so you are safe.
