I was messing around trying to get adb working on my nook hd+ via usb. As I want to find a simple way of doing it, for my friend to follow as they are less technical than myself. So anyway I've modified the android_winusb.inf from the usb_driver_r04-windows folder, and instead of matching the hardware ID's (which when i tried didnt work for me) I have added another nook HD+ line.
; Barnes & Noble NOOK HD+ %CompositeAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_2080&PID_0005&REV_0216&MI_01 %CustomAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_2080&PID_0005&MI_01 ;
ok so my question is, if i send her these modified drivers (presuming the hardware IDs are the same) and uses the mini adb tools in the link below, will it work? will she be able sideload apps into unrooted stock?
