rootin the HD+?

    The B&N rep tells me that the guts (firmware, I think he means) of the native HD+ are exactly the same as those of the Color Nook. I can't find any discussions specifically about rooting the HD+. Does anyone here know whether the HD+ has been successfully rooted, and if so, where to locate the procedures?

    You're asking the wrong forum. You'll find a lot more devs on xda.

    Many thanks fro that referral Colchiro. I'll spend some real time there. It looks like I can find my answers - but it will take me a lot of searching. The people there appear to have a level of technologic experience which I can't match.

    In an earlier post, you had wondered why I would want to root an e-reader. Well, I want a good mid-sized e-reader, but I also want to be able to use my regular Gmail account from that reader, and ideally I'd like to access the internet with it, occasionally. So - I guess I want a tablet which I can use as an e-reader. I also want something a bit larger than the "standard" 7 inch screen. The Nook HD+ and the Kindle Fire HD+ are the two best quality color e-readers.

    Right now I'd leaning heavily toward the Nook HD+, if I get the idea that I could root it successfully. (Yes, many others have probably rooted an HD+, but I'm not in their technologic league. I will need lots of time, and possibly even a little hand holding.)

    Root an e-reader and you end up with a half-a$$ tablet...

    Any tablet can read books. :D
