Thanks for the help, I'll try this in a bit and update if it worked.
Most of the below zips can be flashed (installed) on any version of stock HD-HDplus ROM as long as you have booted the Nook into stock at least once and registered.
I recently bought a Nook HD which is unregistered and unrooted, and I'd like to keep it that way if possible. I've used a lot of the brilliant advice here to skip the OOBE experience and sideload free apps using adb. However, I'm hoping to be able to buy a few useful apps and I don't like Google Play. The apps I want are available on Amazon, but if I understand correctly I'll need to enable installation from Unknown Sources.
Leapinglar's long post [CWM/ROOT/UNKNOWN SOURCES] HD/HDplus Stock Root/other Mods - via CWM flashable zips looks like the way to go if I just want to enable Unknown Sources without rooting....but it also says
Is this true if I only create a bootable SD card and use it to backup and then install the zip for Enable Unknown Sources? If so, are there any workarounds? (Including for my overall goal, ie a way to buy and install an Amazon app without registering/rooting my Nook HD?)
Thank you for your help and for such a great resources!
Unable to install! This application was not able to install onto your device. Please remove some items from your Library and then download the application to try again.
[...]there is one critical partition that holds vital device specific information that was created at manufacture that is probably wise for you to back up.
[...]type the following command:
dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p7 of=/mnt/sdcard/factory.img
This will make an image of your partition 7 that has that vital information. It also has a copy of the factory.zip file used to reset your device should you need to.
hi, thanks for the info!
what is the source of this information? where are the contents of /factory discussed?
i don't have this device, this Q is regarding a port request of REPIT to the Nook HD+:
EDIT: more info here...
thank you again
