Can this be done over the new B&N update? I don't have a Nook Tablet yet and was wondering before I buy it if I can still root it.

Yes, this is (currently) it's primary purpose.

Default What if you haven't received OTA yet?

I am really nervous. I bought my wife a NT for Xmas...i rooted it and loaded it with everything she'd like to have on it. Then, i turned it off, wrapped it, and placed under tree.

When she opens it Xmas morning, will it automatically load this 1.4.Bull****? Is there anything that can be done to prevent the update before it happens so that you don't lose hours of work?

Thanks,
Tommy

Okay, so i went in Titanium backup and froze the devicemanger and bn cloud service. That will enable me to NOT receive this update, correct?

If you installed the gapps with indirects root script you shouldnt have to worry about the update as it installs FOTAKill.apk as well which should kill ota updates like this.

Edit: Does this mean the tablet is unbrickable if you end up bricking it by messing with its software?

Not yet.. we need to prove it.. however, it will take all the root folder files in the update.zip uncompressed and named in a special way to do that.
