    im pretty new to the world of rooting, but my d1 is successfully rooted. that being said i have a nook color that needs wifi to do anything but read with it. i have barnacle wifi tether downloaded, but my nook does not seem to pick up the signal.

    am i doing something wrong? should i use something different? i really want to root my NC but not having wifi where i live it would be useless unless im out and about where wifi is available.

    any advice would be greatly appreciated

    First off :welcome: to the forum. I use Wireless Tether and it works fine. I would keep trying different apps until you find one that works.

    Nook won't see the ad-hoc network your Droid creates stock. Even rootung the nook doesn't change things until you mod the wifi system file. Someone hacked a file you can push to a rooted Nook via adb or using a file manger on your nook that replaces a wifi system file allowing it to see ad-hoc.
