Nook TabletEarlier today we reported about how to prevent your Kindle Fire from receiving automatic updates so you can keep root, and it looks like the Kindle Fire isn’t the only tablet that requires such a workaround. Remember the NOOK Tablet update that blocked sideloading and removed root as well? It turns out that people don’t want that as well, and thanks to the folks over at The Ebook Reader and XDA developers, they’ve managed to beat it.

First, you’ve got to download a recovery file for the NOOK Tablet which you can easily use to downgrade the Android tablet back to version 1.4.0. Next, you’ll need root access, but it basically involves editing the devicemanager.db file on the tablet to disable automatic updates. Once you’ve done it, you’re pretty much set and won’t have to worry about dealing with automatic updates from Barnes & Noble ever again. Hit the source link for the complete instruction and download links.
