Oh, well, then the 2.0 probably uses different args.
"apktool" by itself will tell you the order of arguments.

To run anything on the desktop the Java 7 runtime environment is fine.
To compile an Android application you have to use Java 6.0 SDK.

Well then, since it appears from the changes that 2.0 requires the Java 7 SDK, I guess I'll uninstall it all and get 1.5.2 and Java 6.

I'm running desktop applications:
Code:
C:\>java.exe -version
java version "1.7.0"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0-b147)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 21.0-b17, mixed mode, sharing)
I'm compiling Android applications with:
Code:
C:\>javac.exe -version
javac 1.6.0_38-ea
apktool runs under the JRE, version 1.7 is fine.

OK, finally got around to completing the instructions as posted, and except for having to add the command 'shell' to the mount statement, everything worked fine. And, it accomplishes exactly what I was after.

Next I may look into trying your library and reader apps.

Thanks again!

P.S. You might consider rewriting the readme file included in nook121patch.zip to better describe what each patch does.

The readme is admittedly very old.
That's because I forgot that it's even there!

Each of the individual smali files has comments at the head saying what it does.
I'll make something to compile the individual comments into a single readme.

I can also report, at this point, that unlike an other method I have tried to accomplish this simple task, this one does NOT run thru battery life like it was going out of style.

The next most popular option, NookManager, which uses the NookModManager to do this fix, uses an average of 10% battery life every day, even when in in sleep mode the whole time. Turning the option off (I.E. reinstating the swipe to unlock) again reduces battery drain to a more normal point.

But, the fix by Renate seems to use nomorebattery than the stock reader, whether reading, sleeping, with WiFi on or off. I like it!

Once again, Renate, thank you very much for this, and for all you have done for the Nook community.
