Earlier we brought you a guide on rooting the Nook Tablet in one click, and while the one click solution worked for users using Windows, Linux and Mac users had to go through a string of ADB commands. While that method wasn’t that cumbersome compared to most roots in the past, Mac users now have the chance to root their Nook Tablet easily, thanks to XDA-Developers forum member t-r-i-c-k .
