You don't need a credit card to register. I would recommend you master clear it and start over, creating an account this time and skipping the credit card section.

Is there any way you can get wi-fi at a library, university, cafe, walking around a mall looking for a free signal, or something? I don't think you can register properly without it.

When you do register, it will give you the option to skip the credit card step.

If it were me, I would restore it to stock, e.g. using Touch-Formatter (which would change it to firmware 1.1. also), then root using the appropriate TouchNooter. The "manual" method with adb seemed too tricky to me (though I am sure it is not that hard once you understand it). Then you could transfer apks over using a USB cable.

For how to do that, the XDA Developers forums might have information, if it is possible. But if there is any wifi anywhere you could maybe ask to use it for one minute. Or maybe buy a USB wireless adapter, then immediately return it and get your money back...

You can't register without WiFi access. If you skip OOBE your battery life will be shot to hell.

hi everybody
i m in my friend's place who is in another city .Fortunately i was having my nook with me and he has got wifi. i Finally registered my nook with bn .I m wondering about the fuss made of registering.its so easy .there is no mentioning of country specific (usa) and no credit card is required. i also updated my software to 1.1.2.

Glad you figured out the registering!
For anyone else wondering:
You do not need to put any credit card details in to register a Nook. You can do it from anywhere in the world, and you don't need to use VPN or anything to register the device. You do need to use WiFi, but once the device is registered you never ever have to use WiFi on it again! You can sideload your material with for example Calibre.

TouchNooter 2.1.31 should work with the 1.1.2 firmware.

The most likely thing is that you didn't follow the instructions EXACTLY. Read every sentence five times. If you do anything different to the instructions, it won't work. Including the instructions it displays on the Nook screen.

If it still doesn't work anyway, what I would do is try TouchFormatter. However, this will get rid of your registration. Then after that, start again with TouchNooter.

Hope it works out for you.
