How to Place Shortcuts to Your Books in Your Nook Using Alternative Launchers
So, you just got a Nook and want to use your favorite launcher instead of Nook’s stock, but doing so will prevent you from placing shortcuts to your favorite books. XDA member mad5427 figured out a way to place these shortcuts and links to your favorite materials in the Home screen of other launchers like ADW or Zeam. The guide is relatively easy to follow and will allow you to have everything you need at your fingertips. The only caveat is that you will need to be rooted in order to get the device to recognize them as shortcuts. The device will open them with whatever pdf app you want it to open.
If you were missing having your favorite books handy because you rooted the device, this is your chance to go back to the way you like it. The dev has only tested on two launchers but if any of you can test on a different one and give some feedback, it would be great to add to the guide.
I figured out how to put sideloaded content like books, comics, pdf files, etc. onto your homescreen. This was, for me, the last essential task I desired. This device is now what I consider perfect. Everything from here on out is just bonus.
This is assuming you are rooted and now using ADW or Zeam as your launcher. This won’t put shortcuts on your B&N Home screen, but words for the two listed above. I haven’t tried any other launchers.
You can find more information in the guide thread.
