    Default Sideloading The Nook 1.2 Software Update, With Pictures

    I've posted pictures of my nook in the process of a successful 1.2 software update.

    Enjoying my new updated nook! Snappier UI, faster loading and sorting. Still
    waiting for the cappuccino menu.

    Default Need help sideloading the update

    The directions on the B&N site say to "Drag and drop the downloaded file to the root directory of the nook drive".

    Where do I find that?

    The root directory is the top directory. Not any of the folders.

    When I connect my nook to my computer and open it there are folder icons. These are the folders listed:
    .adobe-digital-editions
    my audiobooks
    my B&N downloads
    my documents
    my music
    my screen savers
    my wallpapers

    do I drag and drop the update file to one of those?

    Don't open the nook on the desktop. Just drag the download to the nook. It will copy, then eject the nook from the computer and it will load the update.

    Hello. The last time I updated the software not via OTA, all i did was download and then drag it into the nook drive but NOT inside any of the folders. Once you drag and plop in there, your nook should recognize and start the update.

    This worked, thanks! Now I'm just waiting for it to update....and I'll have ugly, iPhone like buttons but they say it'll work better. I'd really like the option of keeping the old buttons, I thought they were so sleek.

    Successful download of the update, even though I was rather short on sleep. Now to put it through it's "see trials". I need sleep.
