EDIT: I tried to reinstall the package with the replaced uImage into my father's nook. (1.2.1 with Nookmanager and kernel 166) and it said "installation aborted", when I switch the signature check on it says signature check failed or the like.

Bad luck.

OK... I just found
"install-kernel-166.zip"
on my hard drive.
I have no idea why it got removed from the first post. Maybe the link is posted somewhere else.
Anyway, download it from the attachment.

Wow - thanks a lot. Big kiss. Saves me a lot of time, as I have to root a whole bunch of Nooks soon.
I just tried it with mine, as I wanted to update to 1.2.1 anyway.

Everything works perfect (OC kernel, multitouch, NoRefresh) - now this is the best reading device ever.

Giving Rooted nook w/ 174 kernel to someone else
Has anyone been able to change the gmail account on a rooted nook and not break SearchMarket? The experience I've found is that the initial gmail account used in the rooting process can't be changed. If it is changed later, all appears to work, but when downloading apps from the market (via SearchMarket), a network error appears and the app fails to download. If the gmail account is changed back to the original gmail account used during the root, then I can download apps again. I am deleting the accounts.db on the nook to clear the gmail accounts which may be part of the problem. Has anyone discovered a way to root the nook and then be able to change the gmail and have the market (even SearchMarket) work?

(This is relevant to this thread because I'm later applying the fastmode patches to the kernel, although I guess there might be other threads more directly relevant.)

Help
I'm really having trouble enabling Fast Display Mode. I've installed Kernel #174 through CWM.

I'm on FW 1.2.0 and I'm trying to follow the instructions below for these extra scripts but I don't know what to do.

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...8#post35362768

Please could someone give me a step by step guide on what needs to be done?

Thanks.

Once again ...

1. install Gscript
1.1 download apk
1.2 copy apk to msdcard
1.3 open the file using any file manager
2. unzip toggle.sh file and put it in /sdcard/gscript/ on your msdcard
2.1 run gscript
2.2 select load script from sd (or something like that)
2.3 run script

Where do you have a problem?

toggle
gscript toggle fast mode is not good enough for me. I want to remap a button, physical or on screen to fast mode toggle, how do i do that?
The original fastmode.apk by guevor doesn't seem to do anything. He also says he use the read now button to toggle, how is that achieved?
Thanks for helping.

I hope it will be helpful

I just tried these instructions with adb wireless and commands seemed to go through. Now every so often my nook reboots and I get the message Install Failed. I used ulmage v1.66.

Any suggestions on why this is not working or what to do to properly install kernel?

Thanks

Thanks for helping.

1. "button on screen" - you can install 'Legacy Launcher' and add Gscript script as a shortcut on your desktop.
2. If you wan't to add fastmode to 'quicknav' or assign it to a hardware button it needs to be embedded in an installed APK.
If you have the right knowledge, use 'Apktool' and change the original FastMode.apk.
Today I tried to do this but I have failed on signing a package. My personal certs are not valid (my lack of knowledge is showing). I'll try to play with it next week.

This might be useful for you if you will decide to do some dev work :

edit :
Ok..I learned how to create a package, sign it and install properly. I still need to figure out howto to echo 1 to /sys/devices/platform/omap3epfb.0/graphics/fb0/fmode;
using android apk. (I won't do it during this weekend, that's for sure). Any Dev want's to create simple apk using "sl4a" template project?
If anyone would provide such an apk I'd be able to happily return to my shell scripting.

Prompt
New version of FastMode.apk written by me.
Works on FW 1.2.x.
No one else wanted to do this, so I have learned something new and created my first android apk.
You can thank me later.
