Started the process, and need help. My nook is messed up before I even did the first step. In order to start the root process it says I need to interrupt boot 8 times, tried that and that's where the trouble started. I went to then restart it. The screen flashes yellow, then I get "installing...." picture of nook with green arrow, then it says "A new software update is being installed. This will take a few minutes" yellow bar at the bottom, fills up, then reboots. The process starts all over and keeps repeating. I tried to hold the N button and power button, it asked me if I wanted to do a factory reset, said yes. It went thru the process, but nothing changed. When it reboots it goes right back to the update cycle. Please Help

wow, , I have spent 3 hours on different forums trying to find a solution to the problem. I installed Nookie on a flash drive and it booted to Froyo, but I could not get the driver to install right, installed the SDK, but the google driver it listed wasn't working, finally I just turned if off, and took the sd card out. Turned it back on and it started it's rebooting cycle all over again, but this time on the 5th time it actually took, and I was able to get it working. Don't know how it started working again, just so glad it is.
Update: after that scare, I was able to finish the rooting process

Has anyone figured out if it's possible to sync your Gmail calendar with the Nook Color? Also is it possible to add Adobe Flash Player 10.1? Not sure if it's possible...it seems to have me stumped! Otherwise I'm loving rooted NC!

Yeah, sloppy editing on my part with the image references - thanks for the tip. Just tweaked it.

NC still not found on PC. I've run through all of the installation instrustions including the below:
"* If you're getting a "device not found" error when running adb, download and unzip this file, open install.exe, and follow the on-screen prompts (this will install drivers so your computer will recognize the nook)."
I just see a few entries under "Disk Drives" under "Device Manager"
"B&N Ebook Disk USB Device"
There are 2 of these.
Under my computer there are 2 removable disks.
I've gone through the steps of downloading the SDK, etc. I just don't get the entry for "Nook" that is supposed to show up under Device Manager with a device unknown error. I've also added the driver that's mentioned.
Any ideas? I've gone through the nookdevs.com link too.

What ROM is put on the NC after successfully rooting using this guide? Eclair 2.1?
And I noticed in the other Nookie Froyo thread for the SD card that you don't have to be rooted to be able to run that, considering you use this root method and want Froyo, would you still be able to take advantage of all the root goodness by having it loaded on the SD card?
... No new ROM is put on your nook by rooting, you're simply gaining root access to the ROM that it's already running. It's B&N's modified version of 2.1, Eclair.
Of course you can still boot nookie off of an SD after rooting. I'd say most people running nookie are also rooted. I only pointed out that it isn't necessary because being able to run a custom ROM without rooting is a very rare phenomenon on an android device.
