I expanded on Indirect's bootable root sdcard and create an image that includes a update.zip image. The purpose of this is to root your Nook Tablet so additional software can be installed from the Android market or other sources. You will need a Micro SDCard that is at least 2 GB. If you want to add additional applications, flash this image to the sdcard then put your sdcard in the computer, open up the update.zip file and add your applications to the data folder. This has been tested on 1.4.0, 1.4.1, and 1.4.2 and everything works. Once your nook tablet has been root, you can reformat your sdcard from within the nook and use it as you normally would. Remember, if you have to do this again, you can just reflash the image to the sdcard.

This will add the following:

root
superuser
gapps
unknown sources hack
ez file explorer
adw launcher
Home Catcher
Home Manager (allows you to switch between launchers easily)
BHT
busybox
NT Hidden Setting
GetJar
Amazon App Store
Slashtop HD (Free from getjar)

Unzip file
Flash the image to an SDCard greater than 2GB
Power Down Nook
Put in sdcard
Boot nook
Choose "Apply update.zip from sdcard"
When it is finish, remove sdcard and choose reboot.

Thanks quid246 for pointing out an issue with the permissions.

Is everything on this one download, rather than Indirect's 3 download files? Or is this just the img file?

One download; unzip the image; flash the image; boot

Yeah, I added the unknown sources hack to yours and indirect images. I was really doing it for myself then I just threw it out here. Thanks.

Thanks Brian. Worked just fine. I do have a question, though. I don't get the Amazon app store and the only g apps I get are search and the market? Somebody in the other forum mentioned google plus. I don't have that, gmail, or anything else. Am I supposed to?

wait, so you used other peoples work and didn't give credit? You added a single line and called it your own? This thread should be closed.

What came first the chicken or the egg? Let me try...

1) Indirect creates the 1.4.1 SD Card root method
2) Indirect enlists the help of brianf21 to "finish what he started"
3) Indirect disappears from the thread never to be seen again
4) Albert creates his SD card thread
5) Brian takes his work and creates a thread where he has control of the OP

Is this close? As someone who has been on this site pretty much everyday for a couple of weeks now I "assumed" that Albert's cards were simply Indirect/Brian stuff packaged with better instructions. Is this true? If not I apologize.

Indirect asked for help in regards to adding the unknown sources hack and in addition to that, I added other apps and your BHT binaries and busybox. Indirect, had one zip for root and another zip for GAPPS. This does that and more. So, it was more then just one line. I assumed Albert and Indirect were working together on their zips.
