One of the biggest advantages of having devices unlocked or otherwise accessible is the fact that we can mod them to our heart’s content. Among some of the most popular modifications, using storage space that has been reserved by the manufacturers always seems to be a crowd pleaser. So, if you are the lucky owner of a Nook Touch, should see what XDA member meghd00t has put out there for you.

As it turns out, the Nook Touch has quite a bit of on board storage reserved for books and downloads, but if you are reading this, it probably means that you have better uses for the precious ROM memory, such as installing apps. By applying a few commands via a Linux loaded PC, you can modify the values needed to increase your available storage.

As stated before, you will need to be a bit familiar with Linux in order to apply this. Please let us know if it worked for you and leave some feedback for the dev.

I wanted to increase the available space for my side loaded content and reduce the space for B&N downloads

After much talking and tons of requests and useful threads, we are happy to announce that the Barnes & Noble Nook Touch. In case you are not familiar, this is like a regular e-reader with the only difference that it runs on Android. This has to be the only device on Android that can last over a month on a single charge. This already has tons of development on it but due to the lack of a forum, its threads were scattered in the dev area of the Nook Color. The device is already rooted, market enabled, and a few people who have it are happily playing Angry Birds on it already. Don’t expect it to be able to play any graphics intensive app, but it will do the basics.

If you have one already and would like to share your findings, impressions, and overall opinions regarding it, please do it in the new section.

You can visit the B&N Nook Touch home on XDA here.

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.
