Default [N2E][1.1] TouchNooter 2.1.31

This Nooter is officially supported by The Nooter Project for Nook Simple Touch

I'm not adding certain things because I don't believe they should be available as part of a rooting kit designed to give users more control of their devices. Things such as additional readers or CPU Clocks are up to the user to install themselves and needlessly putting them in Nooter creates app bloat that a user may or may not want. You can always drop Apps you want into \nooter\data\app and they will install automatically when you root the device. This Nooter is designed with the sole purpose of opening up the possibilities of the device by giving users Root, Google Apps, and other Apps which make the device more usable as an android device than just an e-reader.

  • What it does:
    • Enables ADB via uRamdisk
    • Installs adbWireless
    • Installs Button Savior
    • Installs NookTouch Tools
    • Installs Amazon Marketplace
    • Installs su and Superuser.apk
    • Installs ADW + E-ink Friendly Theme
    • Installs Busybox & Busybox Installer/Uninstaller
    • Installs Gapps (Gmail, Market, Youtube, Others)
    • Installs NookColor Tools (To Enable Non-Market Installs)
  • 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:
    • January 26, 2012 -
      • Tested Fix: ADW not installing - Caused by spaces in ADW's Filename in 2.1.26
      • Added: Amazon Marketplace, Opera Mini
    • January 26, 2012 -
      • Added: adbWireless, SuperManager (Root File Manager, APK Manager, other useful tools), Busybox Installer/Uninstaller
      • Untested Fix: Market 1 Day wait
      • Updated: busybox, ButtonSavior.apk, su & SuperUser.apk
    • November 20, 2011 -
      • Removed: GoLauncher, LiveWallPaper Picker, maybe some other stuff.
      • Added: New Market, ADW with Black Minimalist Theme, NookTouchTools.
      • New: Rooting Image
    • 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. Using the Nook Simple Touch can result in it becoming unusable (bricked).
    5. You must have enough intelligence to follow instructions.

  • Let's get started:
    1. Download TouchNooter from here: touchnooter-2-1-31.zip - Uploaded
    2. Linux: Unzip and use dd if=touchnooter-xx-xx-xx.img of=/dev/sdcard (where xx-xx-xx is the version number)
    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
      • If you wish to use Underclocking follow these steps
        1. Download Underclock.zip from uploaded attachments
        2. Unzip it and place the data folder in /nooter/
        3. Check that the com.antutu.CpuMasterFree folder is in the /nooter/data/data folder
        4. Check that com.antutu.CpuMasterFree.apk is in /nooter/data/app
    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 new TouchNooter boot screen, follow all instructions.
    9. That was the hard part, now to the simple stuff.
    10. Upon boot unlock your screen.
    11. At the Android Welcome Screen skip Sign In.
    12. Enable Location Services when given the option.
    13. Connect to Wifi and launch Youtube from ADW's App Drawer (Or the App Drawer of your Choice).
    14. Click the Menu button (The right one in the middle of the status bar).
    15. Select "My Channel" and Login using your Gmail Account.
    16. Exit Youtube and Launch Gmail from ADW's App Drawer.
    17. Sync your Gmail Account and Exit. (If it fails to sync that is fine.)
      • At this time Market fails and you must wait up to a day. Just check it every so often. Future updates should fix this.
    18. Open up Market and Accept Terms and Service.
      • If you made it this far your nook should be successfully Rooted. Go Download an App to make sure.

    19. Enable Non-Market Installs by running the NookColor Tools App.
    20. If your Youtube fails to launch Uninstall and Reinstall Youtube from /data/app
    21. Go to Settings > Device Info > SdCard > UnMount > Format

If I can find a way to do it without killing the device I will.

Default Works great

Hi
It works great, thanks.

Beside the full GApps do you know if there's a way today to get the Market working on a firmware 1.1 with TouchNooter 1.11.11 ?

Go through all the steps manually with something like noogie. The reason TouchNooter can't do it is because to get the script to run requires the the system to boot, replacing the files while the system is active will cause the system to crash when you go to reboot it to complete the steps for Market. Because of this to install Gapps you have to use a method that doesn't require the system to be active like Noogie.

Another method which would allow us to add Gapps, is if someone completed a version of CWM for Nook Touch.

Dear Gabriel,
somehow i gained working market on my Nook with 1.1. I used the older touchnooter with subplanted framework.jar and uRamdisk (wifi one). Then i've done all steps as in guide. Market however didn't saw any applications. I removed youtube app, and it started working! Then updated market to that one http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...4&postcount=51 using adb.
"adb install -r Vending.apk"
And right now i'm cool.

I've done the root for 1.1 manually, and it was a bit of a pain, so everybody should be thanking Gabrial here for streamlining the process a bit and not having to hunt down all the elements necessary to make a rooted Nook useful. (It's not actually difficult, but nobody has centralized *all* of the info even if much of it can be found in the Knowledge Base thread, including e.g. that you need Busybox even for something as simple as the cp command.)

domi.nos-
Is the -r switch for reinstallations any different than removing the old Vending.apk and then installing the new one? I still have not got market 100%; search won't work. Is it working for you? It's not really that big a deal because I only need a few apps but all the same it'd be nice...

Is it necessary to revert to original Nook ROM (the backup I've made before rooting the Nook Touch)?

No as a see it does not search. ;/ But in my opinion it is more important to find out why did my nook (any everyone elses' as i presume) disappear from pc market website.
But as i remember in the previous 1.01 software market couldn't do true way of searching, it was only showing most used searches.

This may sound dump, but I don't have a lot of knowledge with android yet.
This root is without any google apps, Can I download the google apps apks and install them on my device?
