With wild (and unconfirmed) rumors swirling about the future of rooting on the Nook Color, those who already have one of the modded Android tablets just got some good news: the port of the Honeycomb preview that's running on the Nook Color can now be rooted.

Dev NuroSlam posted a method of installing the necessary su and busybox files, which will grant apps like Root Explorer, Titanium Backup, and SetCPU root access.  It still isn't working in conjunction with SuperUser app (which asks your permission for root), so you're missing that extra layer of precaution.  But if you're handy with a command line, check out our how-to root Nook Color Honeycomb thread and enjoy your rooted Honeycomb!
