Hmm I guess this means i am going to be running by barnes and noble to buy one on the way home from work today. It is really too bad they saw this coming and didn't put 3g in it.
Device: Nexus 5
ROM: The one with Android 4.x

If you (or anyone) do get a NookTouch and root it, I'd be most appreciative if you could share you experience regarding several points:

(1) pdf -- zooming and landscape (NookTouch does not have multitouch; can we at least use the "+/-" zoom buttons in the free acrobat pdf reader? -- assuming that we can sideload apps!)

(2) can we install an alternate launcher? (e.g. zeam)

(3) can we access (google) calendar/contact/gmail?

(4) connectbot? terminal emulator?

(5) kindle/aldiko/etc?

(6) battery life?

Thanks!

all except 6 can be possible, thought 6 is possible but if you are ready to give up performance then you can use setcpu which requires root.

I agree/believe that the first five bullet points I raised are possible; what I'm interested in is the *experience* -- e.g. is it realistic to use a rooted NookTouch to sideload the acrobat reader to read a 20 page science paper in pdf with equations *comfortably* (the latter would likely mean reading in the landscape mode).

As for item #6: this entire thread is about rooted device :) My question is whether using the rooted NookTouch to run regular (not flash) apps like acrobat reader/aldido/brower would kill the battery (e-ink uses energy only when it reflashes, but if you have to scroll your pdf file/webpage frequently then this might still be an issue...).

Is sideloading the only option for loading apps onto the rooted Touch, or is it possible to get apps on there via an app store?

I'm sure something will be worked out. Give it time.

If we can sideload Ammazon Market it should let you download app. I will try it tonight.

Once we have Adb working possibilities are endless.

I should get one, I'm pretty sure one can cook up a modified CM7 for this easily.
