1st OP

Welcome, fellow Nook users, to the future of the Nook Simple Touch! We present to you: 1337 ROM!

This ROM is made for both the Nook Simple Touch and the Nook Simple Touch with GlowLight using software version 1.2.1.

Features

Installation Instructions
  1. Install Clockworkmod Recovery (to internal memory, not the SD Card) according to this thread.
  2. Download the latest version of the ROM from the Downloads section. THESE ARE NOT FLASHABLE FILES.
  3. Extract the package to an accessible location. You should have three *.zip files.
  4. Copy all three *.zip files to the SD Card or internal memory.
  5. Boot to Clockworkmod by rebooting and holding the bottom left and right buttons at the "Your Nook is Starting Up" screen.
  6. Wipe /system (mounts & storage > format /system > Yes)
  7. Flash the nook_1337rom_xx.zip and reboot.
  8. Follow through normal B&N setup, then boot back into recovery.
  9. Flash Nooter-Part1.zip and reboot back into the OS.
  10. You should be brought to ReLaunch instead of the B&N homescreen.
  11. Open YouTube. Hit Menu -> My channel. At the prompt that appears, tap Add Account.
  12. Sign in with your Google credentials (Gmail and password) and close YouTube.
  13. Open Gmail. Tap menu -> Sync. Gmail will promptly crash (straight to home; no FC or "unfortunate" stop)
  14. Reboot back to CWM again. This time, flash Nooter-Part2.zip.
  15. Reboot again and enjoy!

Upgrade Instructions for coming up from previous versions of the ROM
  1. Download the latest *.zip file and extract it somewhere safe. As a reminder: THIS IS NOT A FLASHABLE FILE
  2. Copy the three contained *.zip files to your SD card.
  3. Reboot into recovery.
  4. Wipe /system (mounts & storage > format /system > Yes)
  5. Flash all three files in this order, without rebooting: nook_1337rom_xx.zip, Nooter-Part1.zip, then Nooter-Part2.zip.
  6. Reboot.

Note - Be sure to check out the 2nd OP for the changelog, planned features, FAQ, and more.

FAQ

Q: "What home launcher does this ROM use?" - @DrNO[PL]
A: It uses the ReLaunch launcher.

Q: "Where are the downloadable files?" - @kwyrt
A: Since this thread is a DevDB project, the downloads are in a separate page, which is accessible through a link in the ribbon above the OP.

Q: "Does this project use Android 2.3?" - @dorfd1
A: No, it doesn't - the only reason the 1st OP says it does is because 2.3.x is the lowest Android version allowed in the DevDB system. This ROM uses Android 2.1.

Q: "Will multiple languages be added to this ROM?" - @DrNO[PL]
A: No, they won't, because, believe it or not, it's already a stock feature - you just need root to access it! Here's how:

1. Install the app Termimal Emulator from the Market.
2. Open it, and enter the command
Code:
su
The line should now have a "#" on the far left.
3. Enter the command
Code:
am start -n com.android.settings/.DevelopmentSettings
...which launches a hidden settings menu.
4. Tap "Locale Picker[English (United States)]".
5. Choose your language, and enjoy!

Q: "Is this ROM rooted?" - @youxiaojie
A: Yes, it is.

Q: "Are you guys working on an updated ROM that uses 2.3?" - @frap129
A: No, because as of now nobody has been able to update the Android version on the Nook Touch device. 2.1 is the version we are developing for. UPDATE - It's looking like Gingerbread and beyond may be possible for the NST, so the new answer to your question is YES.

Can you post some screenshots?
Which homeapp is used? I'm asking as the one in [NST/NSTG][ROM] Tweaked Modded ROM [Feb16] is restarting / falling into refresh loop with some of my books, which is a bit annoying

It uses ReLaunch. Give me about an hour and I can throw together some screenies.

Edit: they're up now! Sorry for the delay. Check up top.

Would love to try this out but I'm not seeing the links for the 1337rom, nooter-part1, and nooter-part2. Am I missing something?

It's a DevDB project. Look above the OP.

No, it's not - the DevDB options just don't allow any Android version below 2.3.x. It's really Android 2.1, just like every other Nook thing.

Sorry about that.
