Default Manual Nooter Sort of Works on 1.4.1

I'm looking a bit more at rooting via manual nooter on OS 1.4.1.

As of now, the Android Market is not working

In my hands, the BN shop is also not working. Books cannot be downloaded. (The reader does work, though, so you can shop and then download to your PC, then push the files in manually if you like.)

Together, those two elements not working argue against rooting 1.4.1 for anything other than study and development, I think.

- 1.4.1 installs on a device which had already been rooted (this device is rooted but not overclocked.)

- boot from a manual nooter 4-5-18 disks works

- after applying MN 4.5.18 and the APK enabler, the device booted. Root was retained and SU works fine (I was able to use adb wireless)

- install via ADB works

Other things to be aware of:

- this is not a Gingerbread release for the NC.

- the home button behavior is changed a LOT. Home Catcher for the Nook Tablet will also work here, though.

- the device automagically snarfs Google contacts if it's registered to a gmail address, it seems. There is no warning on that. I think that behavior is a Big Effing Problem.

Yes, if CWR is written to your boot, you cannot install BN updates.

It might be possible to use a flashable 1.3 installer to write only /boot, reboot, then update to 1.4.1. I know there is a flashable 1.3, but I do not know where it lives.

Yeah I went back to 1.3 stock and then to 1.4.1 update.

Yeah, wouldn't it?

I'm figuring from the lack of screaming it's probably working.

So from a rooted 1.3.1 you:

Use CWM to install a vanilla 1.3 ROM, then update to 1.4.1 via B&N download, then root using only 4.5.18? I seem to remember to root 1.3.1 you needed to root with 4.5.16 and then 4.5.18.

I have been able to use 4-5-18 without any problems on both 1.2 and 1.3.

You may not even need to install the vanilla ROM - you may well be able to install to a rooted device, so long as you have not meddled with /boot, either by installing a CWR boot internally or by overclocking.

My fast experiment this morning involved updating a rooted 1.3, then rooting that resulting 1.4.1.

Anyone check to see if it will still boot from an SD card, just want to confirm before update, but because it is still rootable I can always downgrade.

Edit: I am in the process of updating as I type this, I will post the results in case anyone else needs them.
