I am proud to present you with: Nook Tablet Unrooter One click APP!
By Indirect

Information?: Well, the way to best unroot the nook tablet (as it's easy to see if you have done mods to it) is to do a factory system restore, so I decided why not exploit that and make it into an application? Well that's exactly what I did and best of all, it's 1 click (technically 3 but i don't count accepting SU permissions as part of the app). You need to grant SU both times it asks for it to automatically reboot.
Code:
//I take no responsibility what happens with this application or your device and assume that any problem during this process if user fault.
//
Download link?:
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/15069134/Nookunrooter.apk

Instructions?:
Install app, open, click button, grant SU permissions (twice), and let it restore. That's about it.

Warnings?:
You WILL lose ALL data on the tablet except the Sdcard. Be sure to back everything up using titanium backup.

Changelog?:
Code:
1.2: Initial release
Credits?:[code]Dodgejcr for his code on github so I just had to change a few things as well as his help in IRC. Thanks man
Myself for rewriting parts of the app to be a one click unroot for the nook tablet

Thanks for this, I have it downloaded as a just in case. Seems much simpler than the 8 or 10 failed boot techniques.

Dumb question, but I am assuming this has been tested on an actual NT?

Yeah, tested it on mine last night before release.

This does indeed work although it didn't reboot my Nook Tablet automatically. After I clicked on Unroot Device, it didn't automatically reboot. I tried rebooting it myself and then it began the process of restoring to factory. When it booted back it it was indeed unrooted. Or at least I think it is.

Is there anyway to verify that is truly is unrooted?

Get terminal emulator apk and then type su
if you get permission denied, it's unrooted. I know it's unrooted since I had to re-root.

Edit: The developer and I are working on it.
