1) What is the simplest way to do this? (I am a novice, so speak slowly.)
2) Do I risk bricking my device? Stated differently, if I screw this up, can I reset the device to factory settings and start over, or does it become the door stop with no going back?
3) Curious - I have an Android phone. If after rooting, I link the Nook to my Google account, will I be able to download software I have already purchase and have installed on my phone, or no? Do I have to buy a second license?
4) Anything else I need to know?
Thanks in advance.
