    You're thinking of 1.0.1 which didn't include pinch zoom for the browser, you had to use the plus or minus to do that.

    And apparently this breaks root too. And it's non-optional without a hack. :( Honestly, why does BN try to break root? WTF is up with that? Very, very non-androidy.

    Lol, I honestly don't think B&N knows that they are breaking anything haha. In fact, I'm getting the sense that they are learning Android as they go along. :p Just like any other company, who jumped on the Android bandwagon with a tablet or ereader.

    xda and linked threads here automatically do it.

    this update is great. previously if you were rooted, you couldn't access read in store features. I've been on the prerooted 1.1 all day and got it back.
