Just like the Nook Color before it, the Nook Tablet from Barnes & Noble has been successfully rooted. The process itself is simple enough and accomplished via one of two available methods. For those seeking the easiest method possible, a one-click root tool is available for Windows PCs. For everyone else there is the option to go through ADB and enter afew lines of code.
While gaining root access is a huge accomplishment, it is only the first step in cracking the Nook Tablet’s software completely open. A locked bootloader is still making things tricky, and root access is quickly lost when the tablet is rebooted.
