For those who are interested, a quite detailed root tutorial in here:

Not at this time, URS. The new device is not as simple to work on as the NC is.

I was pointed to this thread and the above link as I am trying to 'tweak' my tablet. I really just want access to the amazon apps and perhaps the google market. Well, it mostly worked, but I don't think it's working as it should. I installed the amazon mkt, and the golauncher. However, the only way I can access these are in the notifications at bottom of screen, and the only way I can access these is by downloading and installing them again. Surely, this isn't the way it's supposed to work. I really just want to make it like it did on the NC!! I also like the gallery I have on it.
Also in the tweaked side - there seems to be no 'back arrow' to navigate, so I have to hit the 'n' and it takes me right back to the nook library.
I'm confused..... Are there any suggestions?? Thanks!!

You can do one of 2 things to fix that. You should be able to search for'Go' and you should find the Go Launcher to run; providing you used Go Launcher.
Or, install an app called Button Savior. I wish I could remember where I found it, but it helps tremendously. It allows you to easily switch to the Go Launcher screen at a touch.
OK, try this page for better instructions on the Button Savior: http://liliputing.com/2011/11/rooted-nook-tablet-t

Here is a video tutorial on how to root for free.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s5zumNizDoU
I also demo unroot. Check my youtube channel for more videos on the nook tablet. http://www.youtube.com/user/albertcwertz?feature=m

OK - these have been great links, and I'm working my way slowly through my 'tweak'.... So far I'm very happy with it as I can now read my 'Vanity Fair' mags without having to reboot to the NC 'side' as I had to on the NC. I do have some questions, and one problem.
I've downloaded GoLauncher - and the Button Savior (wow - that is great - so easy to switch between 'tweak' and Nook) However, I tried to download AnyCut - and was confused as it said that I already downloaded it, but was nowhere to be found on my NT. I did see that the Android Market listed my phone and NC, but not my Tablet. So - lo and behold! There it was on the NC. Android Market only lists my NC, not my Tablet. How can I get it to recognize the Tablet? Also, where can I get the app for AM? It's on my NC, but not myTablet (how did I get it there??)
Also, and these may be 'dumb' questions.... but if I leave the setting 'Debug mode when usb is connected' and 'automount when usb is connected' checked - is this ok? What am I actually doing?
On 'button savior' I can get the choice between nook home and android home - but how can I get the other 'buttons' to work?
So far, once I get this totally set up, I think the 'tweak' will be far superior to the options available on the NC -- for my purposes anyway.
Thanks to all the helpful answers, and looking forward to solving these other 'dumb' questions!!

I just found this link, and it all sounds so simple. Should I do it? Will I still have the option of launching either interface (nook or android?) What am I doing to my warranty? Is it reversible?? An inquiring mind wants to know....

If I understand this aborts your warranty. Is this correct... Also waiting for someone to try this from geeks.com.

It only voids your warranty if you, say, walked into BN and plopped your Nook Tablet on the counter to ask about an issue and they checked it. Then they'd see that you'd rooted it. Unroot it and there's no evidence that it's been rooted and your warranty is in full effect. In other words, you have to make it obvious. The only problem I could ever see happening is if something occurred that prevented you from unrooting. What that would be, I can't even imagine.

If I were to root is there a good chance that B&N would put out a firmware update that would make rooting null and void? My concern is that I root, purchase some apps from the Android Market, and then the NT gets updated and the rooting gets zapped and I can't use the programs I purchased from the Android Market. Is this a likely scenario?
My understanding is also that apps currently available through B&N for the NT are made to fit the 7" screen properly etc and that downloading Android Apps may not work properly? Is this the case? Thanks!

Everyone else has copied this root process from those posting the process on XDA Developer forums. If you want the most up to date root process with the most options, do the root straight from XDA, not from a 3rd party site with recopied files. Check my root process and links in my videos to the XDA forums for the most current information. http://www.youtube.com/user/albertcwertz?feature=m
