Yeah, I'm going back there tomorrow because he really wanted to see what the soft-rooted nook can do, and is going to buy the other 1002 Wi-fi just so he can do it. He said he upgrades his other to 1.4.1, and I informed him not to do it.
I just got done softrooting mine (twice, there was a problem the first time...most likely user error), and I'm really loving it. I just used the feeds to DL Wizard of Oz and a couple Philip K. Dick books, and I'm surprised as to how well the Chess program plays.
I gotta say, I'm kind of glad I cancelled my Kindle. I really didn't think I would be..but I'm VERY happy with this!
