I'm thinking of unloading my HD+ plus poetic slimline case - I haven't touched it for more than an hour since I bought the Samsung 8 incher I'm carrying now.
Let me check with my girflriend on this. If she wants it she gets first dibs.

As the Nook person at my store I can tell you that messing with the software does technically void the warranty. I can also tell you that unless the MOD you talk to is a total stickler for the rules, nobody really cares. They'd still help you. Whenver somebody comes in with a messed up Nook due to a rooting, I simply do a hard reset without the SD card inserted and bam, problem fixed.

>>N2A cards do void the BN manufacturer's warranty.<<
I'm not deniying you know your stuff, since you work there...but if a person had a hardware issue with a Nook and took the N2A card out before returning it...it's still using the original software. Why would it void the warranty--and how would they know it?
Full disclosure: I got the N2A card for my HD+. I used it a few times. But I have it in my NC, so I took it out of the HD+ and just use the NC as an Android tablet while keeping the HD+ in the native Nood interface. My HD+ started to overheat so I brought it back and they exchanged it for a new one. No one asked about if I'd had anything like the N2A card. I don't think it had anything to do with the issue. I'm honest enough that if I thought I'd done it with the card, I wouldn't have asked for the exchange.

Well, according to the N2A website, the card will NOT void your warranty..
It does make sense as once the card is taken out you can reboot your device to a true B&N format and vice versa. It's not the same as rooting the device as this will permanently change the OS. Once this happens, it's much harder (if at all possible) to get it back to the original.

I was thinking the same thing, only B&N can determine what voids the warranty. However, using the N2A card is similar to using a separate hard drive on a computer, this does not void the warranty. If someone is using the N2A card to overclock the Nook that would be a different story and would not fall under regular use.

That's a good question.
How does anyone at B&N know a N2A or AFN card has been used if the user takes it out and boots to normal Nook?
Are there other signs?

I just have a quick question. Will the N2A card work in the HD+? At the site it only mentions the Nook Color and the Nook Tablet. It would be pretty slick if it would work like an android tablet with the HD+.

There are 4 separate downloads/cards for the Nook devices one for each of them Nook Color, Nook Tablet, Nook HD, & the Nook HD+. I personally have one for each of my two Nook Colors and one for my Nook HD+.

For those that have tried the N2A cards with the HD+, have any of you found another ereader app that recognizes embedded fonts? Does Nook for Android recognize embedded fonts?

Hey Daenas! I'm glad your friend convinced you to hang on to your HD+ for a while. Perhaps the update out today will make it more like you want it to be. The annoucement I read indicates that previously purchased googleplay apps will be accessible on the HD devices. It sounds good to me. I'm considering getting one even though my nook tablet is wonderful.
