Default [NTG][1.2]GlowNooter 1.12.25

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 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:
    • May 26, 2012 - Initial Release
  • Before you begin:
    1. You must already have a registered Nook Simple Touch Glow
    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 CWM from here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/atta...5&d=1323121399

    4. Unzip CWM and you'll find an image file you will then need to write this to an SD Card.
    5. Linux: Unzip and use dd if=cwmimagename.img of=/dev/sdcard
    6. Windows: Unzip and use WinImage to "Restore Virtual Hard Disk Image" to your SDcard.
    7. Windows Alternative: https://launchpad.net/win32-image-writer/+download

    8. Power off your Nook Simple Touch.
    9. Insert TouchNooter SDcard into your Nook Simple Touch.
    10. Power on your Nook Simple Touch.

    22. 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.

Talking It works.

You couldn't have made me day any happier, Your hard work has given me a small tablet that I will use at work for keeping notes and recalling info. I'll be Joe cool with the info.

Thank you for all your hard work, I'll look in my couch and find something to donate.

I have previously rooted using Roustabout's tinynoot. If I decide to do this Nooter, would I have to restore to stock first? (Haven't decided yet, pretty happy as is, but would like to know the options.)

Thanks,

Hi,

Hmm, awesome =), just installed this on my Nook STR Glow.

Two questions

1. What's the best way to get Market searching enabled?

I've heard of installing SearchMarket - however, how do you do that? Do you just find the APK and install it manually?

2. Is it possible to install the Multitouch and NoRefresh patch from here?

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1568560

Or is the Glowlight version different enough that these won't work?

Cheers,
Victor

Anybody have trouble with getting the Opera Mini that comes with this to work? It doesn't even open for me. I installed Dolphin Mini and it seems to work ok but I'd like to get Opera working.

Default Multi-language root

This is great!

Is there a way to add menus and/or keyboard with another language?

Try opera mobile, not mini.
