    Rooting a Nook Color is not too difficult, as long as you can understand some of the technical jargon. It's not particularly dangerous (to the Nook) as the Nook Color boots first from the SD card then the internal memory. If you really screw up the Nook there are ways to prepare a bootable SD card and "unbrick" most any problem Nook.

    I went a little beyond rooting and replaced the B&N software with a CM7 build and have been playing around with HoneyComb.

    The NookDevs Portal is a good place to start.

    The MobileRead Nook Developers Corner is also a good source of information about rooting and what to expect.

    The real technical Nitty Gritty is at The XDA Nook Forum

    I installed the Nook for android app for all my B&N needs. Works a treat.
    Flash is working using Dolphin browser, the only real down side is that YouTube is not working in this version of CM7.

    It's likely that.I'll flash back to stock when B&N up date to the next version of their software but for now this thing rocks.
