Dark_hawk,

From what I read from Gabrial, the only way to install Gapps if when nook is booting, and there is no safe way as from now. I'm still checking, though.
My experience so far? 1.1, touchnootered with 1.11.11, backup recovered with titanium backup pro (which worked quite well, I might add), and besides market, everything else is working?
I'm looking for info on how to install Gapps, or market at least, but no luck yet. Gabrial mentioned something about using noogie, but I don't even know where to look for Gapps version that may work on Nook STR>

Question How can I install Side-loaded APK?
I think, its dumb NB question... but I can not figure out, how I can install side-loaded APKs... I copied APKs to Nook but just not find a way to install them on nook... Is this something simple ? or not that simple as I think?

The Easy method above worked perfectly with my new nook running 1.1.0.

all I would add is that I got search working in the market by toggling "allow non market apps" in Nook Tools app, then installing the vending.apk file from my sd card with ES file explorer as an application. just select yes when it asks you to replace system app.

To get ES file explorer to begin with, I scrolled thru the whole list of top free apps, which took awhile.

Apps that I was able to install and work:
ES file explorer, Facebook, Google reader, Google voice, XDA app, Opera mobile, Opera mini, Google+, Quickpic and Paint easy.

Thanks to everyone for all the hard work that made it easy for a N00b like me to root and customize my NST!

+1 It seems ES File Explorer is not installed!

Well, I followed the recipe:
- Restored
- Resetted
- Updated to 1.1.0
- Touchnootered with 1.6.24 and framework and uramdisk for 1.1.0
- Three locked boots (at least 5 minutes each)
- When tried without SD, got back to regular nook!!!!
I did register, though, after reset. Would that make a difference???
Gotta try.

I've tried to install ESFile Explorer through browser but with no results. Besides, browser crashes when, for instance, I try to write something on google.

One way to side-load apk's

The way I did it was to copy apk's to my SD card, then download a file explorer/manager app from the market (my personal favorite is ES file explorer), which allows you to view the contents of your SD card, and select apk's to install.

It sounds like you did it the exact same way I did. Just to make sure did you delete the old Framework and uramdisk files, then copy/rename their replacements to match the original files? i.e. framework.jar and uRamdisk

I think the easiest way to get it would be from the market. if you haven't updated the vending.apk file to fix searching the market then you would have to use the category buttons at the top of the market to browse for it and install it.

Yes, I deleted the old version, installed uRamdisk usb 1.1 and framework 1.1.jar and renamed them properly (same name as erased files).
Did it all over again, no registering, and same result: after running for 3 times, went back to regular nook STR!!!

Forget about the restart the process three times, do it like this:

1) Use nookRestore to restore /system.

2) Erase and Deregistered to wipe /data
(If it dosnt let you, force it shutting down your nook, then starting it up, and when the screen flickers press right and left bottom buttons, hold for 5+ seconds).

3) Register, or not, as you preffer.

4) Apply 1.1 firmware update.

5) Open the TouchNooter 1.6.24 image and inside the nooter folder, search and substitude the uRamdisk for this one http://www.multiupload.com/CJ981FWPJG
and framework.jar for this one http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=352.

6) Use the new TouchNooter 1.6.24 to root your device. Follow the instructions here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1132693
If it dosnt work, try again until it works.

7) Continue with registering: Youtube (401 error) --> GMail --> Market.

8) Download adb, and unzip it:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...1124160&page=6
download this vending apk:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...1124160&page=6
and sqlite3:
http://www.sqlite.org/sqlite-shell-w...86-3070900.zip
copy the apk and sqlite3 tothefolderyouunzippedadb/platform-tools , open cmd and then:

cd tothefolderyouunzippedadb/platform-tools
adb connect yournooktouchip

Now we are going to enable non market apps use my method, or what madmachinist said:

adb shell
mount -o rw,remount -t ext2 /dev/block/mmcblk0p5 /system
adb pull /data/data/com.android.providers.settings/databases/settings.db settings.db
sqlite3 settings.db "update secure set value=1 where name='install_non_market_apps';"
adb push settings.db /data/data/com.android.providers.settings/databases/settings.db
adb reboot

now when NST reboots:
cd tothefolderyouunzippedadb/platform-tools
adb connect yournooktouchip
adb install Vending.apk
adb reboot

You are done, everything should work now.

Is it possibile to uninstall these two:

  • Installs Button Savior
  • Installs Go Launcher
?

Why use Button Savior considering that physical buttons can be remapped to work as "back" and "menu"?

Thanks!
