Installing B&N 1.2.0 on an already rooted nook?

Could I just go ahead and download the Barnes & Noble update on an already rooted nook without any problems? and if so what method should I use?

Thanks guys!

If it's rooted with AutoNooter I think it will over-write that and you won't be rooted anymore, but not 100% positive.

abooch - Speaking as a person who had a rooted Nook then unrooted and now has "just" the stock Nook, the new update is perfect for me. I have my books, plus access to web and email. I downloaded a few of the free apps (6sense for Facebook and Twitter access, note taking app, etc) and bought the EZPDF reader and also bought a Bejeweled-like game. Of course I don't know what your gf's needs are, but if she just wants a few apps and occasional web/email access, the stock update should be just fine.

And yes, if her Nook was rooted with autonooter, the new update will overwrite it.

I use calibre to sideload books, and yep, they still work. It's somewhat tricky to get the book covers to display, but that's the only real glitch I've found. And now you can put sideloaded books on the Home screen, which I love.

I have my nook rooted with autonooter but the update did not overwrite it. I put the zip file on the internal memory and it just disappeared.
