This is a simple guide and script from Start to Finish on how to root and install all needed programs to your Nook Touch. Enjoy :) If you find anything wrong with my script please let me know but I think I ironed out all the bugs during testing.

Disclaimer: Try not to break anything...and if you do its not my fault. If you think its broke hold the POWER button down for 20+ Seconds to Factory Reset the device.

Requirements:
Nook Simple Touch
WinRAR Archiver
512+MB/GB microSD
External USB/Internal USB Memory Card Reader
Dedicated Wifi Connection with Good/Excellent Signal!

Tweaked/Additions:
Full Superuser Access
Updates are permanently blocked!
Unknown sources Enabled (install non-Market applications)
adb debugging is active [mostly for developers]
Ability to replace the Authors ****ty pictures
Ability to remap the left buttons to Menu & Back
Market Installed & Working! Login to YouTube with your GMAIL!

Software Included:
AdFree (Block those nasty ad's) [Wi-Fi needed]
Button Savior (Displays Softkeys)
gTab simi Clock (really awesome clock for your desktop)
Kindle (read your Kindle books on Nook, lol) [Wi-Fi needed]
LauncherPro (default launcher instead of Nook base launcher)
Superuser (provides a list of applications that use superuser access)

Instructions

Step 1:
Run Win32DiskImager provided in this package. Select your 512MB or larger microSD card under Device. Be certain your microSD card drive letter is selected and not one of your hard drives. Click the little blue folder icon and find the img file “noogie.img”.
Once the image is selected click “Write”.

Step 2:
Safely eject your card and insert it in the nook while it’s completely powered off.
Plug in the USB cable and the light next to the USB plug will blink Green/Orange.

Step 3:

At this point you should see a Forever Rooted screen on the nook. Open Windows Explorer and find the drive labeled “boot”. Take note of the drive letter you will need it later on in the process.

Final Step:

Run xe-autonook.bat and follow the instructions

Here's my workflow, feel free to use any of it you find useful. Since it's personal code, no error checking, etc. The directory /system/xbin is already in the path, but not present on the device -- I create it. adbWireless is very handy, it allows you to turn adbd off or on, a useful security addition for wifi. bash & busybox aren't required, but can make your life at the console a lot easier.

xboxexpert asked me to remove my code from his thread. Done.

Which part of the script turns off the windows transitions and animations?

(I've done most of these things already, but I'm wondering what you mean by this item)

Download my kit. In the main directory there is the adb.exe here are some of the commands laid out for you to utilize

Code:
adb connect IP
Where the IP is is where you put the ip address of the nook. ie. 192.168.1.8

It will connect to the nook and you will be able to type
Code:
adb shell

Verify that # is what you see. type exit to exit adb.

Put any apk files in the directory and then type
Code:
adb install APKFILE.apk
It will install the apk file on your nook.

I hope I helped

adb disconnect (disconnects the nook)
adb kill-server (kills the server and quits all running processes of adb.exe)
adb reboot (reboots the nook if connected)

Overdrive seems to work just fine...

Has anyone tried out the Kobo, Sony Reader, or Overdrive apps and had any luck?

I have it installed and it appears to operate correctly. However, I have never used it before. It launches the crippled default browser when connecting to my library and this can be problematic to browse and download content. I would think everything would work smoothly when using an alternative web browser.

Thanks for the response...but I listed 3 apps, which one did you get to try?

    Can you expound a bit? What did you use from the script after using Touchnooter? Did the Market work out of the box? Even using TN, I have not been able to get past the Market and YouTube giving "401" Network Errors. Did you do something special to get them to function?

    No, youtube and market worked out of the box with touch nooter (after first restoring to my pre-root image). I haven't even bothered updating the market because i'm using SearchMarket to find apps, it works just fine.

    I just ran the commands from the batch file to ensure updating was blocked, system file permissions were correct, and to install a few starter apps. Looking through the batch file is a good way to understand the basic functionality with adb if you haven't used it before, which I hadn't, so now I feel fairly comfortable just making changes by hand - which proved useful last night in getting Smart Keyboard Pro working.

    Nice Job !

    Thank you, I put ALOT of effort into the script portion. Its pretty much flawless for what it does.

    Here's my workflow, feel free to use any of it you find useful. Since it's personal code, no error checking, etc. The directory /system/xbin is already in the path, but not present on the device -- I create it. adbWireless is very handy, it allows you to turn adbd off or on, a useful security addition for wifi. bash & busybox aren't required, but can make your life at the console a lot easier.

    Code:
    xboxexpert asked me to remove my code from his thread. Done.

    Which part of the script turns off the windows transitions and animations?

    (I've done most of these things already, but I'm wondering what you mean by this item)

    Sorry I deleted that portion from the actual script. I just forgot to update post.
