Thanks, I'll give that a shot shortly.

I've tried logging into the android market using the non-rooted technique and complains I have no android phone after logging in under my google account, enter a phone # etc. After the root, will this be resolved, or did you have an android phone / tablet already on the account?

I'm new to Android, so by "rooting" we are only talking about access to android marketplace and more apps correct?

Android is basically Linux

Rooting your device means giving yourself root, or superuser (admin) access, giving you access to system files and the ability to change things that normally are marked read only.

This allows for removing "pre-installed" applications (called by some people "bloat-ware", because they bloat the system.), installing other applications (for example, although members of this forum figured out how to "side-load", or install without a market, some of the Google apps, the "Google Market" requires an entire framework which needs root access), and making changes to the system in ways that generally void your warranty (but can sometimes speed things up and make the device do things that no one expected it to do).

"Rooting" is also the first step (but only *one* of many) toward installing custom versions of the Android operating system (or "ROMs").

It's kind of a big deal, and the ability to root makes the device just *that much* more appealing to people who like to tinker.

Question how to check if NT is rooted
Hi, I followed the video all up till the part before it prompts the installation of Gapps. I don't know why mine did not provide that prompt. It just stopped working.
Now I have no clue if my root was successful. Please help?

you might have accidentally hit enter or something. To check for root, go to search and instead of putting go launcher in, put superuser and it should tell you if the superuser app is installed or not. If installed you are rooted and you can use the gapps instructions to install that alone. but I would just try running nook zergy again. Make sure your cable is not loose.

How did you get one if you are in india? I am sorry, but your request is one that very few would even consider. My recommendation is to setup a fake mailing address or possibly a P.O box.
