Nook Tablet movie 011It wasn’t too long ago that Amazon’s Kindle Fire tablet got rooted, so we can’t say that we’re very surprised to hear that its competition, the Nook Tablet, has been rooted as well. The method to rooting the Nook Tablet is apparently similar to the one used on the Kindle Fire, and for those looking to install Google apps on the Nook Tablet, it seems that a method has been discovered for that as well. Once again it seems that this was achieved with through the same method used on the Kindle Fire as well.

Do take note that we mentioned that Barnes & Noble was a bit sneaky with their “generous” offering of 16GB on their Nook Tablet. While the tablet does come with 16GB of internal storage, only 1GB will be allocated for third party apps and personal media, which means if you’re looking to install a bunch of non-B&N apps, you might want to get yourself a microSD card if you haven’t already got one.

So if you’re interested in rooting your Nook Tablet, you can find the instructions on the XDA forums here, while instructions on installing Google apps onto the Nook Tablet can be found here.
