You could set up a new email address and use that. You do not need to add a credit card. You can skip that.

You registered it with an email, and it hangs? Do a hard reset, then try again.

To power off your NOOK, press and hold the power button for 10 seconds. At that point, the device should be turned-off. Wait a few seconds, and then press and hold the power button for about 2 seconds to turn your NOOK back on.

Take a look at this thread.

i would try the hard reset/deregister at the B&N site first.

Is this an issue with old firmware and TLS ?

https://help.barnesandnoble.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/4212

Literally the old firmware cannot connect bc they deprecated some ssl ciphers, iirc.

the solution for this is to manually update the firmware by copying it over and letting it update.

If it's not bc the firmware is to old ( I didn't see a site listing all the firwamare versions with dates) you can also reset and try skipping OOBE registration following this link (not sure if it will work on your firmware)

I'm pretty sure the Glowlight 3 is newer than that issue. I believe it is just the Simple Touch and older that could run into that situation. Possibly the first Glowlight as well. But the Plus (2015) and newer should be fine.

I didn't think so, but I couldn't find a good reference for models/dates so i thought I would throw it out there. Also, I ran into that updating my glowlight plus, so I am sure that influenced my thought process

To be honest, I'm going off of memory, not facts

Any update on this?

I just picked up a new Glowlight Plus, and want to use it strictly with sideloaded content and not register it.

I was able to gain ADB access by following the thread linked above, but I don't know where to go from here to skip the OOBE and just be able to drop mobi/epub/whatever files on it and read them.

Any help is much appreciated.

Thanks!
