Does NOT work on Nook COLOR. Nook TABLET ONLY. There is a difference.
NEW SD CARD image, Version 4.7 Files cleaned up, for 16and8GB NT only, ANY version
changed hosting, spent some cash, donations appreciated...
4.7- removed keyboard to be separate patch, removed amazon to be sideloaded.
4.6- Patch now 8gb and 16gb
4.6- restructure files again
4.5- LIVE WALLPAPER, 3d Gallery, Custom Keyboard, and changed files to one flashable small image and zip file. New instructions, also link to supplemental app package so download for root files is smaller.
4.4- Restructured files and added an instruction txt file to make the process even easier to follow.
4.3- Added a couple of extra apps to sideload folder
4.2- deleted readme file
4.1- changed sd image file to install faster, follow steps below same as before.
ROOT through SD card doesn’t require custom Drivers! You are still responsible for following root process to achieve root. Warning- Always make backups of your tablet. I am not responsible if you mess this up or brick your tablet. You do this at your own risk!
DO NOT MIRROR these files.
This process is heavily dependent on the work being done here
plus additions of my own!
Thanks to:Indirect, Loglud, ChainsDD, Bauwkz, Nemith, Goncezilla, Brianf21, AdamOutler, Meghd00t, AND Albert Wertz (for his work here and building on others work)
And anyone I have missed, please PM me.

Computer required to make SD card. No Computer Required to Use SD Card for Root and CWM depending on the variation of NT you have. There is one variation that does require a USB connection to enter CWM. You can thank barnes and noble for poor quality control.
***Disclaimer You do this at your own risk, Use your head, if you are not comfortable with this, dont do it. Rooting nulls your warranty if you try and return a rooted device, they and I will laugh at you. Unroot it before returning. This modifies the onboard Rom, So root will be on your tablet after using Root SD card.***
Windows required; mac and linux users: just extract the img file from the downloaded file and mount it to an sd card. its that simple. If you dont know how to mount an IMG file to your SD card... Google it.
