I'd suggest going to the nookdevs IRC channel and asking in there. I got some good help tracking down my issue with registration getting lost (still haven't solved the problem, but the questions I asked were answered quickly to help me investigate.)
I just hope that there's actually some one in there. I'm in the GMT+8 time zone.
Oh and just incase I'm being an outright idiot, I don't need a sd card in the slot for the root to work right?
Don't know if you've tried this yet, But those are the instructions for rooting 1.5. Supposedly works up till a 1005.
Read the last paragraph of the first link then follow up with the second link. Hope it works for you, at least then the problem lies with my application of the method rather than the method itself.
