Some of you may have read my thread here:
Regarding my terrible experience with B&N and the Nook. Well, today I went into another B&N (there are 4 within a 10 mile radius of my house), and talked to a gentleman who was incredible to talk to. I asked about a 1002 Nook specifically for soft rooting, and he was very interested in the rooting process, so he went and looked for one for me. They had 2 Wi-Fi and 2 3G left in stock, so I got one of the Wi-Fi ones. They asked if I wanted the warranty, and since I was rooting it, I said no, it voids the warranty. They said, we don't care, we'll swap it out anyway. So I will buy one from them in a few days, I've got 30 to purchase one.
Now I have to go back and teach the others how to do it. This was a quote from them:
"We are very hacker friendly, didn't you see the sign?" LOL.
