This will officially not work for 1.1


  • What it does:
    • Enables ADB via uRamdisk
    • Installs su and Superuser.apk
    • Installs Busybox
    • Installs Button Savior
    • Installs Go Launcher
    • Installs NookColor Tools (To Enable Non-Market Installs)
    • Installs Gapps (Gmail, Market, Youtube, Others)
  • System Files that get Modified:
    • /system/build.prop - Enabling Google Check In
    • packages.xml - Allows Gapps to install properly.
    • framework.jar - Should allow a proper Android ID to generate.
  • Changes:
    • June 24, 2011 -
      • Removed: Multitouch Permission
      • Added: Modified framework.jar
    • June 22, 2011 - Fixed: Script not running at boot.
    • June 20, 2011 - Initial Release
  • Before you begin:
    1. You must already have a registered Nook Simple Touch
    2. You must have a Gmail/Youtube linked Account. IF you used a Gmail account for B&N Registration you should use that one for this process.
    3. You must either have dd (Linux) or WinImage (Windows) software.
    4. You must have an external microSDCard reader or this will not work. Do NOT use the Nook Simple Touch.
    5. You must have enough intelligence to follow instructions.

  • Let's get started:
    1. Download TouchNooter from here: touchnooter-1-6-24.zip
    2. Linux: Unzip and use dd if=touchnooter-1-6-24.img of=/dev/sdcard
    3. Windows: Unzip and use WinImage to "Restore Virtual Hard Disk Image" to your SDcard.
    4. Windows Alternative: https://launchpad.net/win32-image-writer/+download
    5. Power off your Nook Simple Touch.
    6. Insert TouchNooter SDcard into your Nook Simple Touch.
    7. Power on your Nook Simple Touch.
    8. You should see the screen "Rooted Forever".
    9. It will boot like normal and you should be asked to select a launcher now. (If not use Button Savior to go home. This will bring up the launcher chooser.)
    10. That was the hard part, now to the simple stuff.
    11. Upon boot unlock your screen.
    12. At the Android Welcome Screen skip Sign In.
    13. Enable Location Services when given the option.
    14. Connect to Wifi and launch Youtube from Go Launcher's App Drawer (Or the App Drawer of your Choice).
    15. Click the Menu button (The right one in the middle of the status bar).
    16. Select "My Channel" and Login using your Gmail Account.
    17. Exit Youtube and Launch Gmail from "Extras".
    18. Sync your Gmail Account and Exit. (If it fails to sync that is fine.)
    19. Open up Market and Accept Terms and Service.
    20. If you made it this far your nook should be successfully Rooted. Go Download an App to make sure.
    21. Enable Non-Market Installs by running the NookColor Tools App.
    22. If your Youtube fails to launch Uninstall and Reinstall Youtube from /data/app
    23. Go to Settings > Device Info > SdCard > UnMount > Format

  • Thanks To:
    • Arnold Snarb - modified framework.jar
    • nemith - helping me figure out getting it to run at boot.
    • JesusFreke - For getting root.
    • MrMuffin - For the original Market Hack that we're using.
  • Currently Working On: TouchNooter 1.11.x

I've probably screwed up, but perhaps not too badly. Tried to follow all the steps and got the system files copied to media, and then to replace the main system files, but there I got confused. I ended up rebooting without attempting to install the youtube app, which I didn't find in the download. Even now, a lot looks like it is working, but I can't even attempt to sign in to google cause I can't get a keyboard to come up to allow me to enter my user name and password. Is there any help for me, or am I a total dunce needing to start over? thanks!

EDIT: I see I am screwed -- no keyboard is coming up for me anywhere. I guess I can go through a major reset but if anyone has a suggestion to just get the keyboard back I will appreciate it.

EDIT2: Well I got past that, simply chose multitouch keyboard instead of Gingerbread in NookColor Tools.

EDIT3: But now I am stuck again as I can't sign in to a google account... says can't establish a reliable data connection to the server, even though my wifi is fine. But at least at the moment everything else is fine, though the keyboard isn't working very well (but it does work; lots of ghosting)

An .img file is being uploaded for TouchNooter 1.6.20 It'll do all the copy and edit stuff, the only thing it can't do is create an android ID.

In the "GappsAndMore" there was some keyboards which were from the NC it was just a raw pull from AN. This is more refined with things that could cause issues removed. (Like Keyboards, Framework.jars from the NC, etc.)

I'd suggest a wipe and running TouchNooter... GappsAndMore had Keyboards and stuff in it and removed the stock keyboard =\

No you need to do a complete wipe by triggering recovery, but I don't know how to trigger recovery yet.

You could try 8 failed boots. Basically you power it on and then power it off before it fully boots. Do that 8 times and it might trigger recovery.

Confirmed this works great. I'm going to find a fix for the calendar.

Recovery is holding the power button for 20+ seconds it will trigger recovery
