Permanently Root Nook Tablet In One Click [How To]

Nook-Tablet-RootRoot for Nook Tablet is here! Just a while back we covered a guide on rooting the Kindle Fire which really stepped up it’s take on the iPad 2. If you have a Nook Tablet and were wondering when you will get the chance to keep up, you’re in luck, thanks to XDA-Developers forum member Indirect. Even better, the rooting method is meant to work not only on Windows as per popular trend, but on Linux and Mac as well. However, rooting on Windows is strictly a one click method as the famous zergRush exploit has been used in a one click script.

Linux and Mac users however, will have to go through a bunch of commands via ADB to get root access on the device. So without further talk, let’s get your Nook Tablet rooted.

Disclaimer: Please follow this guide at your own risk. AddictiveTips will not be liable if your device gets damaged or bricked during the process.

Requirements:

Instructions:

For Windows

  1. To begin, download the app from the link above and install it on your device.
  2. Download Root Kit from the link above and extract the contents.
  3. Now run the apk file that you installed on your device, and you will be taken to the Settings > Applications page where you need to select Development and enable USB Debugging.
  4. Once done, connect the device to the computer and run the following command in command prompt or terminal:
    adb shell chmod 4755 /system/bin/su
  5. Now go ahead and run the file named NookandZergy.bat found in the Root Kit you extracted.

Sit back and watch the magic happen!

For Linux or Mac

  1. Follow the steps from Step 1 to Step 3 in the instructions for rooting on Windows.
  2. Connect the device to the computer and open the terminal.
  3. Navigate to the Root Kit folder, entering the following commands:
adb push zergrush /data/local/zergy

adb shell "chmod 755 /data/local/zergy;cd /data/local/;./zergy"

adb wait-for-device install Superuser.apk

adb remount

adb push su /data/local/tmp/

adb shell cd /data/local/tmp;chmod 777 su;cd /;mount -o remount,rw -t rootfs rootfs /;

adb push su /system/bin/su

adb shell chmod 4755 /system/bin/su

adb reboot

That’s it, your Nook Tablet should be rooted once it boots back up.

    This is a little misleading. You don’t need to install adb. The root kit has adb included and if you follow the steps at the xda forum it is more straight forward. There is also steps on how to install the usb drivers on the xda forum if it does not go right. Step 4 is included in the step 5 batch file.
