Nook Touch From A to Z

Some people know about it and some others don’t. For those of you who have no clue what the Nook Touch is, it is a hybrid between the Nook Color and any other E-Reader. If you want this put in different terms, it is the first Android powered device with an e-ink screen. While this may not give you the smooth animations that you would expect to see from an Android device, you can consider it a huge leap forward in terms of development of E-Readers in general as it will allow you to do things like web browsing the same way you are used to in your other Android devices. On top of that, the battery life simply shatters any record from any manufacturer lasting close to 2 months on a single charge. However, as it is not meant as a full Android device, it comes rather limited from the manufacturer, and this is were our hacking community comes in. XDA member xboxexpert has posted a very complete guide on how to get everything from market, apps and games, to root access, properly working on the device. As you can see from the screenshot on this article, even playing Angry Birds is possible.

If you have one of these devices, please give this a shot and share your feedback with the rest of the community.

This is a simple guide and script from Start to Finish on how to root and install all needed programs to your Nook Touch. Enjoy  If you find anything wrong with my script please let me know but I think I ironed out all the bugs during testing.

You can find more information in the guide thread.
