Re: Any nook owners here I can PM with? Just rooted mine.
Well, stayed up all night, had a second win, and dug into it. Got a bunch of things installed via the root. I must say I prefer the original interface in one way: The audio icon isn't there in the rooted menu, and the add on for music is clumsy, but then again, I am just figuring it out.
I am so in love with this thing I slept with it next to me, I have a lot of books, much of it not DRMd, but would love more sources of books. I have subscribed, however, to Reader's Digest and Discover Magazine, and ordered all of Aurthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes for 3.99.
My memory card came today, I had rooted the nook with an old SD card I already had for my Cowon player, and was worried once the root was done, I'd be forced to keep that card in the nook. Nope, once you've done the rooting, you can change microSD cards, fantastic! This means my old MSd card can go back into my beloved Cowon player and all is good.
Hopefully I get a good job this winter or spring so I can get a real tablet at some point. I definitely want one that uses microSD, can do ePub, as many music formats as possible (I'd like it to have FLAC and OGG), it would be even sweeter if it did mobi, and of course it would have to do PDF. A horizontal/landscape view for PDF would be grand, color would be desirable...

I rooted my Pandigital Novel a while ago. Go to the SlateDroid forums for information. They have extensive Wikis set up about it. The software I used to root mine is no longer being developed, so I can't advise you on what the best one of the current crop of rooting software is the best now. But by rooting the Pandigital I've now got an poor-man's Android tablet and I was able to download Kindle for Android on it and now can buy and read Kindle books from Amazon without having to go through the DRM-stripping/format conversion process. I find with the Pandigital, it's easier to read ebooks for extended periods of time if you shift the text to white letters on a black background. A rooted Pandigital in no way, shape, or form, compares to having an iPad, but it's one of the cheapest ways to get an Android tablet.
Make sure that you know exactly which version of the Pandigital Novel (the darn color - black or white - even makes difference) since their internals differ, before you try any type of changes to it. This is very important otherwise you can easily brick it.
@ signmeuptoo - I bought a cheap $10 LED lamp from IKEA that is perfect for lighting up an e-ink reader at night. It's not available online, but maybe you can look for something similar where you're at.
