I have never rooted anything before, as I've heard horror stories about people turning their new device into a door stop. But I would now like to try. I have a Nook Tablet, version 1.4.3. Never been rooted before, as previously mentioned. I have read some of the other threads related to rooting but am not certain if the answers apply to my specific situation, as most others seem to have already rooted previously:

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.

Just search for Manual Nooter 5.02.20 and flash it with a CWM bootable SD. You can get the image for the bootable SD in my tips thread linked in my signature.

And no to bricking, it is a pretty safe procedure.

Once you log in your previous purchases are available.

This is the wrong forum for the Nook Tablet..no? This is Nook Color Forum and you say you have the tablet.

I was not aware that Manual Nooter would work on the Nook Tablet.

You are right. I misread the post. Disregard what I said about Manual Nooter. The part about purchases was right though.

I had the dual boot you can get from the link Im posting. My girlfriend and I both have it done, and shes not tech savvy at all, and is still able to use it. Its nice not having to swap out SD cards and everything. But if you want to remove it, its a bit of a PITA as Im having an issue with getting back all of my memory from the second partition thats created.
