Do you know of something that is maybe a bit more idiotproof?
There is no error-proof rooting method that I know of, but I think it's fairly safe to experiment since there is a method to completely backup your NST (which I had referenced) and it is fairly straight forward, basically:
  • Write an image of noogie to a SD
  • Boot your NST with the noogie SD inside
  • Connect the NST to your laptop/PC
  • Save the NST image to your laptop/PC (and archive it to DVD for safe backup).

My Nook is as of yet still unopened, as I was not sure if setting it up with my account would add steps to the rooting process.
You should go ahead and setup the BN account, as it does not add complication to the rooting process.
