According to B&N's fact sheet, this baby runs KitKat and has a 300 dpi resolution. I wonder if it will be hard to root it? There are a couple of apps I'd love to run on such a device. No microSD card slot, though, and 2.8 gb of free space in internal storage If it csn be rooted, I'd be tempted to buy one.

Stoked! Esp. the amount of space available compared to the previous model. Definitely hoping someone can root this quickly so I can put Dropsync on it.

I have one.

I'd be happy to TTD, if you like. Just tell me what to do.

Yow! How did I miss this?

I know where I am going after work tonight, the local B&N!
They have them in stock.

Great! I know you did a lot of work to help develop a rooting method for the last Glowlight. I plan to pick one up soon. I wonder if this one will be hard to root.

Well, I bought my Glow Plus, turned it on and it said, "Let's Get Started".
So I did.

The entire display is simply glued to the frame.
You can work a knife carefully around the rim and detach the display, folding it gently to the left side.

Does it mean your new Nook is rooted?

It means that I have full control of my new Nook.
I still have to figure out a bunch of stuff.
Currently, to gain this access requires opening your Nook.
We may gain enough knowledge to make it possible to root without opening the Nook.
