Merry Christmas... In right before the buzzer.

We have a thread going on here about hacking the bootloaders. I've been compiling information for reasons of running custom firmware, and potential hardware modifications. I keep it all in a folder on my computer. I decided to share that so everyone has access to this otherwise obscure information.

The Nook Tablet Hack Pack contains:
The Nook Tablet Hack Pack Contains various projects and supporting information which require completion and/or testing. Most may be plausable with some additional work put into them.

2nd-init This program is rumored to be able to reinitialize a device via code injection.
Blaze Board -Links to places where you can read about the development platform used to design the Nook Tablet
Desktop Tools -these will require rework in order to use them as digital signatures are implemented on the Nook Tablet

NookColor UART patch- This is a patch for a different device to enable UART output, this may or may not be useful at a later time

It'd be even better if the link was still functional.

I was actually really hoping to locate these files.
