Currently I'm trying this guide:
Nook Tablet "One Click Root" + gapps ADB script
but I've been trying various guides all day. The drivers are there, debugging enabled, auto mount disabled, robot in the bottom corner but when I run ADB Devices, no dice. Anyone have any clues what the problem could be or atleast anyone else having this problem? At first I thought it might be because I was using a different USB cord but it still doesn't work even with the Nook cord

The problem you describe is almost guaranteed to be a problem on your computer and the driver installation.

For the folks here to help, they will need to know platform (PC or mac) and version of operating system.

If Windows, they will need to know how the device appears to Device manager. If it shows up as a disk drive - you will have to disconnect from the Nook side. ADB Composite should be good.

For either platform, confirm that adb_usb.ini is in the right place and modified correctly.

No, you're wrong dude above me.

OP: Run this in cmd prompt
Code:
echo 0x2080 > %username%\.android\adb_usb.ini
You need to have your nook tablet unplugged when you run that then you would see nook tablet in the device manager when you plug it back in.

"Cannot find the path specified." But I can locate the file myself in that directory??

I'm running Windows 7 64-bit, device shows up as android phone>androud ADB interface.

Check, still nothing in ADB, i did restart the server too. To be clear, the .ini file only has the "0x2080" line in it now, nothing else. I'm assuming that's ok because the other stuff was commented out anyway, am I right?

(thanks for your help! )

1) look in device manager now though, you need to install the drivers.

I still see it listed under android phone > android ADB interface and not mass storage or anything like that, you think that's still the problem though?

*Edit*
SUCCESS!! I uninstalled the "Android ADB Interface" and "Android Composite ADB Interface" appeared in its place!!(??) Whatever happened the device show up now. Thanks for the help and keep up the good work Indirect!

I was having problems seeing the Nook Tablet in adb devices, but this fixed it for me.

This worked for me. Hopefully it helps.

While the nook is plugged in (mine showed the 2 "Disk Drives" and 2 Drive Letters under portable devices). Open Device Manager and delete/remove the 2 disk drives called "B&N NOOK Tablet USB Device" (this should also remove the weird drive letters under portable devices). Now go to Control Panel > Advanced System Settings > Hardware Tab > then click "Device Installation Settings". Change this setting to "No, let me choose what to do", and make sure "Never install driver software from Windows Update" is checked below that.

Now unplug and replug your NT, and you should now see an Android Composite device with the "!" next to it. You should now be able to install the custom drivers described in the other posts.

Essentially it seems windows is trying to "help" you by guessing at the drivers you want to use.

If this doesn't work, you can try to remove ALL android devices using the USBDeview Application that you can find http://www.androidsim.net/2009/08/ho...driver-on.html

I used USBDeview for the removal part just because I had a Kindle fire, HTC device, samsung device, all installed and I think they were fighting a little bit. I now have results from adb devices, and dare I say ROOT!?!?!

Hope this helps some of you!
