Android Enthusiasts Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for enthusiasts and power users of the Android operating system. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I checked The Master List of Rooting Techniques, and found nothing. This XDA thread looked promising.

What's wrong with that post? Flash CWM then flash the root package. –  Matthew Read Jan 8 '13 at 3:45
    
Like @MatthewRead I'm a bit confused by your question. Is that thread on xda not working for you, if so what are the errors you are getting? If you wish this is another method: NOOK HD: All-in-One, ROOT+manual OTA+Enable Unknown Source+GAPPS –  Raghd Hamzeh Jan 8 '13 at 22:13
    
It did eventually work, and I just wanted StackExchange to be a good source on this. I guess I'll answer myself now... –  villares Jan 13 '13 at 20:52

'Starting Jan 2012 we are going to allow one "How to root?" question per device. Just search for [rooting] and your device or refer to the index below. If the question doesn't exist yet, create one and add it to this index.' - I've added a link to the list, as instructed, on How do I root my Android device. –  villares Jan 13 '13 at 21:33

To root a Nook HD or HD+ you can use Clockworkmod (CWM) Recovery, a tool to install modifications to an Android device.

Follow the instructions on this XDA thread to create bootable Micro SD from one the provided images.

I used Win32DiskImager on a Windows XP net-book with a built-in card-reader to burn a SD with the NookHD-bootable-CWM-6025-for-emmc-stock-small-rev2.zip image. And I copied NookHD-HDplus-Universal-Root-rev1.zip into it.

Once I could boot my Nook from the CWM SD I made a backup and used "install zip from SD" to apply the NookHD-HDplus-Universal-Root-rev1.zip

More information and tips to be found at the XDA thread

Might be best to add this to the community wiki –  t0mm13b Jan 13 '13 at 21:22
