Downloaded ADB on Nook Classic. How to get it to run? Preez Halp!

Followed all steps (obviously) up to the point where DNS redirected and I got the "Don't Blink" book on my (free) Nook Classic 1.4. Nook devs next step states:

"8) Now turn your wifi off (and back on). This process is actually running the script that gives you root. You can now use ADB over wifi to fix things so you don't need to toggle the wifi to get root, and to disable auto updates from our friends at B&N."

I've turned it off/on and even rebooted to no avail. Even did a hard reboot setting it back to 1.0 /(now back to 1.4) and then re-downloading "Don't Blink" via the DNS redirect...still..nothing. I've installed JDE and SDK software. Nook dev...again...states that in Device Manager I should see "Other Devices > ADB" but I don't. I've read a common distaste with that site on this one and I understand why. It's like getting nav directions from a drunkard. I know I'm close to where I need to be because I god "Don't blink" correctly, but I don't know what to do now to have it install ADB. Let me know if there's anything I can provide to help you help me. Thanks in advance for any help or even reading!

Nvm...just finished cleaning up. Nookdev's info was just too truncated it seems. I found the link below which I breezed through. Wish I'd found it earlier. Now that it's rooted...I honestly have no idea wth I'm going to do with it. lol! Is there a thread open already that tells what you can do with the ancient Nook Classic?

Well there are a few things you can do, like install and use Nooklets, read PDFs MUCH better with aPDF (I think that might be preinstalled), and you can use alternative library applications like the wonderful NookLibrary software which has much better organisation features and shiny features like coverflow and setting the last few read book covers as your screensaver.
From what I've found, that's pretty much it, unless you want to go through many many forum posts all across the internet for other stuff, like nook games.

Sanks again Fox for posting. Honestly...my internet, I guess, took a dive before I was able to post anything snarky here. I had posted my disappointment in no one being able to assist me, but I guess it wasn't posted or someone deleted it. In any case, as you can see by my other post, I've moved on.
