Stealth OTA Nook Color updates to counter rooting?

I do not believe BN would be so devious as to do this without alerting their customers first.

Right now, some people are experiencing their rooting being wiped out. Some are suspecting that B&N is silently pushing out a software update to thwart rooters.

Just reinforces one of my rules of thumb-- do not buy a reader with 3G or Wi-Fi.

If it didn't have 3G or WiFi, there wouldn't be much point in rooting it to begin with.

Well, the whole point of the Nook Color is not to sell people high quality Android tablets on the cheap, but to get you to buy books from B&N.

I also disagree with the comments in that post you linked to about B&N being full of fear and greed by using their own DRM scheme.

Why is it people are so worked up about Amazon being a "monopoly" because they use their own DRM scheme, yet the same people all want every single company to use Adobe's DRM, thus giving Adobe a real monopoly, not the faux one that exists now...
