Hello folks,

Right out of the oven: B&N will show on Monday Nov. 7th a new nook color (Engadget, Android Central). Pretty much the same look, size, screen, improved processor and memory, and somewhat lighter.
On Nook touch side, a cheaper nook touch (99 USD), and a new update 1.1 (Engadget). Cheaper and no ads (Amazon anyone?).
Let's wait and see. Lets prepare a touchnooter for 1.1!

I have yet to see an Android device NOT get rooted (that people actually want to root).

Multitouch sounds fantastic. I'm hoping they show a much better PDF viewer, similar to the Kobo Touch

On a related note... should we be concerned with what seems to be an automatic update with our rooted NST's? I rooted after v1.01, but I read of a few horror stories of people who rooted, THEN updated, then bricked their Nooks.

Again, should I be concerned? Should I keep wi-fi off during the update period?

If you want to be sure, yes keep your wifi off during the update period.

You can block also the OTA updates doing this or this. (It is for the Nook Color but I guess it should work with the Nook Touch)

Or you can also make a backup now so that you can repair your Nook if there is a problem.

It is coming https://www.barnesandnoble.com/u/Sof...ouch/379003175

I don't have time to test it but if someone (who has made a backup of his nook and who knows what he is doing) could test it and tell us if rooting still works, it would be great

The 1.1 source code is also available (here)

Sadly they still didn't get it right... The link points to a Nook Color update

Edit: Correct link now
