Morning everyone,

I am new to rooting a nook and was hoping someone could help me.
Been searching this forum and tabletroms

I have a regular Nook Tablet. I bought it in 2011 and just rooted it yesterday.
I was hoping that by rooting it, I could use a keyboard case I recently purchased.

I probably should've read further before purchasing the keyboard case, but didn't.

This is the one I have from Amazon: Zuweiyu 7" Tablet Stand with USB Keyboard

I also purchased a Sandisk 16gb microsd card

I followed this tutorial to root my Nook on Youtube: [How To] Root The Nook Tablet (firmware 1.4.3) In 10 Minutes by Project Phoenix Media

All went well.

My keyboard case still doesn't work, though I do have the correct cable hooked up. I plugged it into y laptop and it worked fine.
Upon researching further, discovered that USB is not enabled (or available) on my version of the Nook.
I Googled in hopes of finding any other options and found a page which mentioned something about a kernel. ???

Is there anything else I can do to get the keyboard case to work with my Nook tablet?
Any other tutorials, etc?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

AFAIK, USB Host (which enables attachment & use of USB devices) is currently not supported in stock ROM or any custom ROM for the Nook Tablet.

FWIW, it is supported in the newer Nook HD & HD+ (and I believe the older Nook Color).
