    Default Something to consider before rooting your nook

    I asked the Nook guy at B&N about this and this is what I was told: Rooting your nook will void the warranty on your Color Nook.

    Well since I can unroot and reset it back to factory fresh and have done just that 3 days ago.
    And now have a factory fresh nook with everything back to when I bought it.
    And if I had to return or exchange it How would they know I rooted it?

    Also the other option is to do the SD card boot method.
    Put Honeycomb or whatever other flavor of android on an SD card.
    Turn on nook with SD card in and boots to Android.
    Turn off remove SD card and boots to normal. No changes are made to system.

    That is a generic response from individuals with little or no understanding of how it works.
    And are just making blanket statement to cover themselves.

    If you can't put your Nook back to stock before returning it to BN, then you shouldn't be rooting anyway.

    And the voiding of the warranty is largely crap anyway. If I rooted my Nook Classic and it suffered a hardware issue (such as a cracked bezel) they should still have to honor the original warranty, regardless of whatever software changes I've made.

    My classic nook was rooted when I returned it because of the infamous crack back in August. No problems.

    Yeah, considering all the erroneous stuff they've said about Kindles (and no doubt other readers as well) I wouldn't take them too seriously.

    I rooted mine with a sd card I bought on ebay. i can now use it rooted or the color nook the way I got it. If I take the card out it will be like I never had rooted it.

    Anne did you install the Honeycomb root? If so did you follow a tutorial and how hard was it? I used autorooter but now I'm thinking maybe of returning it back to factory specs and doing this instead. I wish there was a way that you could just easily switch back and forth without even having to remove the SD card to run Honeycomb.

    Kevin I bought this card on e-bay and all the work was done for me. All I had to do was follow the instructions to put it on my nook. It is a dual boot which means I can use it as the nook came or use it as android. Here is the listing for the card I bought. It has ended but if you connect the seller he may have more to sell. The listing explains it better than I can.

    With this card you can swith back and fort without removing the card.
