These instructions have been tried and refined numerous times. Always double check your work and that of the source of these instructions at XDA Forums.

Instructions to use!

(geared towards Microsoft Windows)

1. Download the “usbdrivers” zip
2. Download the “Nook&Zergy.zip”
3. Extract both to a folder C:\ntroot\ (example directory)
4. Now you should see the following files and folders inside c:\ntroot:

\system\
\usbdrivers\
adb.exe
AdbWinApi.dll
AdbWinUsbApi.dll
busyboxinstall.apk
debug.apk
NookandZergy.bat
runmefirst.bat
su
Superuser.apk
zergRush

5. Run “runmefirst.bat” and follow the instructions.

6a. When the batch file opens the device manager, If you don’t see a broken device icon next to “NOOK Tablet” then you may have some other generic drivers taking over. Not sure how to remove them so you will have to move to another PC that has never had a tablet hooked up and start over.

6b. If you do see NOOK Tablet with a broken device icon.. then right click and choose “update driver”. Choose “Let me specify where the driver is” and browse to the c:\ntroot\usbdriver folder and hit ok. It should install and you can click “OK” to the warning about unsigned drivers.

7. Run “NookandZergy.bat” and follow the instructions
7a. If you see a long string of numbers/letters it’s your device
Now you should have root.
