Rooting Nook Color

So my auntie gave my mom a lightly used nook color running 1.4.1, and I wanted to root it and get it to run jellybean or ics so she wouldn’t have to read her ebooks on her iphone. She didn’t want all the barnes and noble BS on top of the android system, and I had to strip it.

This was helpful to familiarize me with different methods including autonooter, but what I really wanted was to root it, remove the drm, and install a recovery so I could keep it backed up.

I ended up using a link I can’t find and I’ll post the best one here soon.
