Ok I'm not entirely sure where to start with rooting and flashing a new rom onto one of these fancy tablets and i'm used to dealing with phones where there are a bunch of sticky posts leading to wikis and such not of how to do this yet i see no such sticky posts so i was curious if someone could point me in the proper direction of where to get started with rooting one of these and then flashing cyanogenmod onto it.

Also a side question from the owner/user of this tablet, is there a way to install the stock rom onto a bootable microSD card to be able to keep the stock apps and stuff or should i just be able to make backups of the stock apps, namely officesuite, with titanium backup once the device is rooted?


Thanks in advance for any and all help.

Thanks for all the info leapinlar. A couple more questions. I haven't checked with root checker yet, but is the nook rooted by default?

Also i notice that when you go about installing cyanogenmod, that you make a back up of the stock rom, which is standard in any romming. However, I can't remember, is there a way to install certain apps from the stock rom backup once you've gotten into CM and got it running? I only ask because I'd like to be able to install office suite that comes with the stock B&N rom onto CM.

Just manually put back the apps you want after you do it.... Pretty painless. Also, after root you have the option to install apk's from anywhere so no probs

Also i remember my first root and while this sit is very helpful and the people are great i was still nervous to do it until i watched a few youtube vids on the process, i guess i am a more visual learner when it comes to things. Anyways though, watching the videos of the proicess helped me tons
Good luck
