Rooting For Dummies?

Hey all. I've got a Nook Classic (First Edition) that I'm interested in rooting for added functionality and better ease of use. It's a 1005xx serial, currently with 1.7 installed. I've read Nookdevs endlessly, I've familiarized myself with android sdk and all of that stuff. I believe I have a basic understanding of what to do and enough computer savvy to pull it off.

But the explanations and step-by-step guides I've read are just so freakin' confusing. They seem unclear and hard to follow, like there are multiple methods but only fragments of each one out there.

Is there a definitive, plainly written "this is how you do it" method out there?

I downloaded batch files too, but I have no idea how to use them.

Can anyone help point me in the right direction?

This seems like the best option: http://nookdevs.com/Rooting_B%26N_re...n_any_hardware

I'm in the same boat, 1003+ with 1.7. I wasn't able to get the above to work - seems like the link to the adb website goonies.be is broken but I thought I would post here in case anyone has any ideas.

I can't make it work either. I actually found a copy of the adbd.html file on mynook.ru and hosted it myself to give it a go. But the big problem is that the directions for these processes are less than clear. While I've figured out how to use Android SDK and all of that stuff in a functional manner, I don't know enough about them to know when I've done something wrong. I don't have the background the people who write these things do.

And it sucks that with the Nook Tablet and the Simple Touch Reader out that they (nookdevs AND B&N) have abandoned the reader. That's a shame because even though it's a great reader with some simple software it could be really, really amazing.
