[Q] Nook ST Glowlight Root Not Working at All
I was given the impression by many sites posting a Nook Simple Touch with Glowlight as rooted and a working Google Play.
I got the instructions here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1675706
and followed the links to those files. I'm on Linux, so dd is no problem.
The rooting process was not difficult, but almost nothing works.
-Both browsers launch, but do not do anything despite trying a search phrase or URL.
-Google play does not launch. No feedback. Just nothing.
-Nook ColorTools doesn't launch.
-Amazon Marketplace works, but, since the device is locked to B&N, I can't install Overdrive.
-The "settings" button points to the B&N Nook settings.
-If I'm not careful, I end up at the B&N home screen and cannot get back to the Android desktop. For example, trying to launch Android's settings puts me in the B&N settings and I cannot return to the Android environment.
My original goal was to use the device to read books from my library system using Overdrive app. It's a new-ish device as of 2013-October. Maybe it's not well suited, or something has changed?
Not sure where to start for useful information to track down the issues. Is there a way to turn on logging so there's some information to post?
Thanks for your patience.
