I wrote an app that accesses the hidden settings. I can add more of the hidden settings as we discover them.

Update via the market

Update 3/9/12
Updated UI
Added the ability to unblock OTA
Added CyanoBoot Configuration options
Credit to fattire
See thread for more information: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1522226

Update 2/15/12:
Added "OTA Block" to the version number

Update 2/8/12:
Added OTA Block
Added Version Number
Added Root test. This will prevent it from crashing if /system/bin/su does not exist.

Update 1/27/12:
Updated Link

Update 1/14/12:
Configured busybox to make symbolic links instead of copies
Uninstall previous version before install this version

Update 1/11/12:
Added AdamOutler's BHT
Added ability to run the adb daemon as root and automatically turn off auto mount with one click. This does not require a reboot. If you reboot, everything goes back to their normal state. I will add an option to restore everything without a reboot in the near future. I am using the adb daemon from Indirect's ADB hijack that he got from Nemith. Credit to Indirect and Nemith.

Update 1/10/12:
Fix an issue for users without busybox. This should now work even if you do not have busybox installed.

Update 12/30/2011:
Fix for 1.4.1; it will allow you to install from unknown sources. (You must be rooted to use this feature. The nook might take a minute or two before realizing that the setting has changed. If you reboot, it speeds up the process.)

Update 12/29/2011:
I added the Account and Sync settings and make the back button work properly.

Account and Sync Settings
Accessibility Settings
Application Settings > Development Settings
Default Settings
