Questions regarding restoring settings
1) Is it necessary to ensure that the NST has setting restored (from the Nooks setting menu) before rooting?
2) Does restoring settings from NST Nook menu deregister the device with B&N? I ask because I've read it's important to register the device before rooting or else face reduced battery life - If restoring deregisters the device then I'm concerned about restoring settings before rooting.
3) Once rooted, is it still 'safe' to restore settings from the Nook menu? I only wonder as I'll be giving the device to a less tech savvy person and I'm concerned that in the future they may attempt to use this menu and encounter difficulties.
4) The 'Restore to factory settings' option in NookManager - Does this reset settings but keep root? Or does it restore the Nook to a factory clean image? If the former, I'm wondering if it might be an idea to 'Restore to factory settings' after rooting to ensure everything is in a known good state.
