I have a nook tablet and rather than root it now I am waiting for the boot loader situation to be resolved or bypassed. I got it to side load which gave me the Amazon App store, kindle etc without voiding the warranty. It works fine except that it recognizes the 32 gb SD card but won’t use it. When I tried to move files to the SD card they went to the Amazon Cloud and one disappeared. I have no clue what caused the malfunction. However, by sideloading I have downloaded 38 third party apps and they all function fine.
What is sideloading and how do I do it?
Here is a guide
Great information! I’ve been looking for something like this for a while now. Thanks!

Can this be undone so the warranty is still in effect?
I ran this process and it worked AMAZINGLY! Thanks guys!
My Nook Tablet software version is 1.4.0.
I cant find to do Enable unknown sources under Setting.
I keep tgps_launcher.apk at Micor SD card but i found unknown file inside Tablet.
My computer is Window 7.
Please see the attachment 2 photos.
Please show me the way how to root !!!
So if I root my tablet does that give me access to the extra space on the HD that Barnes & Noble have reserved for their 3rd party ventures? Or, would I still have to get an extra SD card for space? Cause as it stands you are allowed 1 GB of space on the HD. Please let me know.
Can you get more books for free?
If you torrent any epub file will work on your device.
when rooted is it jellybean or gingerbread?
what is difference?
What if my nook has update 1.4.3 installed? Will this process still work?
