I think it will still end up flashing every page. The touch doesn't flash every page of a nookbook because it buffers them. Its not going to do that for other apps.

BTW: ADW launcher works on the Nook as well ;) Can launch apps / browser / etc. Apparently the device has bluetooth as well. Hopefully I can get that working so I can hear some music while reading.

Can someone please run the following

adb shell mount
adb shell df (may need busybox)
adb shell cat /proc/partitions
adb shell cat /proc/cmdline
adb shell cat /proc/cpuinfo
adb shell dmesg (perferably right after a reboot)

Also a system dump would be awesome. I ordered my NookT online so it's enroute.

So, if bluetooth theoretically "works" (and correct me if I'm wrong on that) does that mean that we could listen to outbound sounds on the NT if we were to route the audio to a headset via an app like BTMono?

Can you say, Audiobooks?

Just putting it out there.

I got mine rooted and installed adw and enabled non market installs. i am trying out manga watcher right now and it installed no problem but i had some trouble adding a series. So i used a backup i created on my nook color and it restored fine however when ever i tap on a series it goes back to the adw home screen.

edit: it seems like there isn't enough ram so the app just closes

perfect viewer is working great although i need to get some sort of soft buttons next which means first i need super user

I think i have run into a problem. Alright so i pretty much opened my box and rooted this thing so i don't know about the stock experience but when i go to my library i have one book downloaded when i click on it it asks for my name and credit card number to unlock the book not sure what that is about. Also, when i try to download another book in my library that i have already paid for it just comes up as "problem downloading please try again later"

How do you launch the launcher? Do you need to use adb to launch ADW?

it is still kinda lacking but when i boot up it asks which home i want to boot I choose adw at that point. If i am in an app i make sure to back out to get back to adw. hopefully someone can change the function of the n button to be a normal homebutton instead of bringing up that menu.

nook color tools seems to work

Lastly i just got button savior working so now i have a working home button and always present back button so that make getting around a lot easier.

I really wish manga watcher worked

I've been working on non market installs all day. How did you do it?

Using K9 on Nook Touch!

It is awesome! :) It works perfectly for reading e-mail! It even works in portrait mode once it is set from ADW. This tablet seriously needs a proper Android install. We have to get the N button sorted out to open the launcher and hack the Honeycomb onscreen buttons onto this thing!

We need a CM7 port. ;) Im new to the Nook * stuff so its taking me a while to learn, so hopefully someone with some NookColor ROM experience could lend a hand here.

    Threw this together to showcase all that we've got going on here over on the XDA forums.

    Credits been given where credit is due.
    Probably won't be too entertaining for anyone who has already rooted their nook. ;)


    You can find my wallpaper here:
    nookDroid

    Imaged is sized so you don't have any issues cropping it using the default Android gallery app.

    No problems here,WTF, just exploration.
    Lol, just checking.

    Thanks folks for your reply! Calling their support indeed helped, I made a really STUPID mistake of registering onto a wrong account ([email protected] instead of [email protected]) but B&N website was nice enough to not detect that it isn't a valid email address :/
    Haha, I've been working with computers all my life, I can't tell you how many times I've encountered something that's frustrated me to some lengthy extent to only come to the conclusion that I mistyped something or it was a simple mistake.

    Lastly, I switched out three of the theme for Button Savior with my own icons to increase contrast. I totally redrew them from scratch, only one I copied over was the "Settings" button, made my own and didn't like it. Liked the old one too much. I'll contact jerryfan2000 and see if he'll have a problem with me either
    A) Sending him my themes so he can make a release for us or
    B) Let me redistribute under the premise that I use test keys to sign the apk.

    Until then, I made two mistakes that I need to fix before I post any apk.

    There's three themes.
    • Black and white (Black outline, white center)
    • Metro (Black Square, white center) Like WP7
    • Transparent (Black outline, white center at 15% opacity[Not in photo])

    I also doubled the size of the "Minimize" button and reskinned it. God-sent if you ask me.

    I'll get to this over the weekend.
    WHY did I take summer classes this semester!? Man I'm stupid, no free time. Doesn't help that I work too.
