[Q] Nook ST Glowlight - ready to root?

Walked in B&N today to upgrade to a NST to root knowing that I wouldn't be tempted by the Glowlight versions out May 7th but the B&N Nook guy said, "hey we already have them and a couple of people cancelled their pre-orders, do you want one?"

I couldn't resist and brought it home.

so far I have found no one trying to root a NST-GL yet so here are my observations (but not a review) about the new 1.1.5 firmware on it and the Glowlight hardware after a couple of hours.

the basic menu now has a Glowlight item on the basic "n" press menu which brings up the brightness slider. there is also a little lightbulb always there in the top taskbar next to the wifi icon which shows on/off. I am hoping these are only additional programs and updated menu that wouldn't be affected by root.

press and hold for 2 seconds and toggle the light on/off as reviews have said. it really seems like a hardware function as it works even with the screen locked (but not asleep). I am not ready to try Nooter on it because of this special "n" function and wonder if it would work with the current version of NookColor Tools to get to the adw launcher.

also, just letting everybody know these are in stores already if someone wants to be first to root.

Just attempted to touchnooter the NST Glow. No luck. Here is what happened...

  1. Downloaded Touchnooter-2-1-31
  2. Used WinImage to create the microSD boot "disc"
  3. Powered off Nook and inserted microSD card
  4. Powered Nook on, showed Touchnooter instructions on boot (black flash, remove, reboot, etc.)
  5. Removed microSD and rebooted
  6. Came up to normal "Nook - Read Forever" initial boot screen
  7. Displayed "Nook" boot screen (the one with 5 dots)
  8. Counted through the dots a few times, sorry I didn't get the exact count
  9. Glow light comes on and stays on
  10. Screen will flash black and it will count 3 dots, then flash again and repeat

I let the unit stay on this "stuck loop" for several minutes (at least 10) and nothing changed.

I ended up doing the 8 failed boots restore and the unit is functional again, and "unrooted", so I didn't brick it. But it looks like there is a little work that needs to be done to root the NST Glow.

Noogie will most likely work just fine, I don't actually have a nook with Glow Light so I can't do any development toward rooting it, I can't imagine a lot has changed, so you can probably replace the correct jar files mentioned above with modified ones and it'd work. I'll see if I can get my hands on one of the new devices in the next few weeks.

I'm curious about this as well. I have a rooted Nook Color that, since getting a TouchPad, I only use as an eReader for stuff from B&N and Amazon. I'm considering selling it and getting a Simple Touch Glowlight for my eReader duties but would like to be able to use Kindle Reader on it as well as the Nook app. I'll be watching this thread to see if/when folks get it rooted.

NSTG 1.1.5

I also am interested in rooting the Glowlight, my wife got one for her birthday and wants to load a couple of apps on it. I'm tempted to try Noogie, but I can't risk bricking her device. Is there a reliable path for restoring a NST if rooting via Noogie fails?

If you apply Noogie and made a backup of your Nook - then you have a copy and you didn't touch or modify anything on your nook. Once having a backup, you should be fine. Read the thread related to this (backup) and WATCH out for the size of your backup image !!!
I think, that I would go or the MinimalTouch rooting method (once I place my hands on this new one :) )

B&N v1.1.5 uRamdisk

The Nook Glow is using 1.1.5 not 1.1.2

Try plain Noogie.

When I used Noogie to root my Nook Touches, the accompanying thread (which I will find in a few moments) said to just replace the default boot uRamdisk with one of two possibilities: one for USB ADB access, and one for WiFi access. That worked fine on my Nook Touches !!

Using the same uRamdisk for my Nook Glow disabled the GlowLight, but allowed the extraction of "factory.zip":

http://www.mailpen.com/download/bnFirmware/touch/factory-v1.1.5.zip (108MB)

Hopefully it can be "patched" to provide uRamdisks for USB and WiFi access (I prefer the latter).

However, I'm a bit reluctant to use the same uRamdisk for my Nook Glow, especially since as you note, it is a different B&N release (despite the sizes being almost identical). So, for those that know what was done, but don't have a Nook Glow, the link below provides the one I extracted from my Nook Glow (via Noogie).

http://www.mailpen.com/download/uRamdisk-1_1_5.zip

Hopefully it can be "patched" to provide uRamdisks for USB and WiFi access (I prefer the latter).

A copy of the factory.zip would be even more helpful.

I agree !!! The "Noogie" that I booted only gave me USB file access to the BOOT partition, and I can get you other stuff in that partition, if that helps.

Is there a bootable SD card image that would give me ADB root command-line access, so that I could mount arbitrary partitions on the device and extract factory.zip and anything else you and/or I desired?

Edit: See my response in the related thread. Now that I know that it is safe to use the modified 1.1.0 uRamdisk to at least get root access, I can extract factory.zip and post a link to it, probably (assuming nothing goes wrong, goes wrong, goes wrong, ...) in about an hour.

I spoke too soon ...

GabrialDestruir, your uRamdisk in uRamdisk.zip:

  • When copied to the boot partition, booted fine, and the GlowLight works.
  • However, I do not have root ADB access (like I did with the uRamdisk for the Touch 1.1.0 on both the Touch and the Glow).

Did you enable ADB over USB or over WiFi? I tried to connect using both connection methods. If you provided a WiFi version, I can ping it, but "adb connect ..." doesn't connect. Note that the uRamdisk (for WiFI) for the original Touch allows connections just fine (but alas, no GlowLight).

It should be USB enabled from the changes I made.
New version with default.prop modified uploaded below.
Also posted the changed files.

Modified init.rc in this version:

Works with root access now

It should be USB enabled from the changes I made.
New version with default.prop modified uploaded below.

GlowLight works, but still unable to access via USB as does root ADB access. However, I really need a WiFi version.

Edit: I forgot the "Delete the standard 'USB Composite Device', then update the driver for the displayed 'Nook Simple Touch' to be 'Android Composite ADB Interface." Now works as per above edit.

Many, many thanks to Gabrial for his hard and continuing work!

I copied in his second uRamdisk and am now rooted w/ADB support over wifi.

Copy in adb wireless to your /data/apps folder, and a launcher (both while booted from noogie, with a linux host mounting up the filesystems.) Set up /system properly for su, again just copying in from your stock ST. Enable ADB over wireless using that tool - persistent would be cool, but being able to turn it on at all is great.

I have an alternate launcher, adb over wifi, su installed.

Repartiitioning is done, symlinks are done. I didn't get the partitions exactly how I wanted them, but I have 880
mb of internal storage for myself, the unit is registered and is downloading to /media so I can fish the files I want
back out.

Win, except that the illumination is pretty uneven on my unit.

Does that improve over time?

I haven't tried getting the G market running, but I did just set up the Amazon market and it is running with no trouble at all.

I see with interest that the glowworm has a browser built into it still, exposed once you install a launcher and Button Savior.

Thanks roustabout. I might give that a try tonight.

I tried using the adb usb uRamdisk, but can never seem to get it working on my Linux box.

I am sure as others update their rooting packages a permanent adb wifi uRamdisk will emerge. It only a matter of time. :)

    GabrialDestruir, your uRamdisk in uRamdisk.zip:

    • When copied to the boot partition, booted fine, and the GlowLight works.
    • However, I do not have ADB access (like I did with the uRamdisk for the Touch 1.1.0 on both the Touch and the Glow).

    Did you enable ADB over USB or over WiFi? I tried to connect using both connection methods. If you provided a WiFi version, I can ping it, but "adb connect ..." doesn't connect. Note that the uRamdisk (for WiFI) for the original Touch allows connections just fine (but alas, no GlowLight).

    It should be USB enabled from the changes I made.

    Just attempted to touchnooter the NST Glow. No luck. Here is what happened...

    1. Downloaded Touchnooter-2-1-31
    2. Used WinImage to create the microSD boot "disc"
    3. Powered off Nook and inserted microSD card
    4. Powered Nook on, showed Touchnooter instructions on boot (black flash, remove, reboot, etc.)
    5. Removed microSD and rebooted
    6. Came up to normal "Nook - Read Forever" initial boot screen
    7. Displayed "Nook" boot screen (the one with 5 dots)
    8. Counted through the dots a few times, sorry I didn't get the exact count
    9. Glow light comes on and stays on
    10. Screen will flash black and it will count 3 dots, then flash again and repeat

    I let the unit stay on this "stuck loop" for several minutes (at least 10) and nothing changed.

    I ended up doing the 8 failed boots restore and the unit is functional again, and "unrooted", so I didn't brick it. But it looks like there is a little work that needs to be done to root the NST Glow.

    I just posted a minimal touch based rooting script (ie, a clockwork script that copies in a few files) for rooting the glowworm.

    See http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=26015994#post26015994

    for the details including links to the NST/glowworm CWR disk and the two rooting files I made, both installed via Clockwork.

    I have to run out the door very soon or I'd post more, but many many thanks to all who made it possible - all the parts were around, all I needed to do was put them together. (and leave out the ones I'm clueless about!)

    Many, many thanks to Gabrial for his hard and continuing work!

    I copied in his second uRamdisk and am now rooted w/ADB support over wifi.

    Copy in adb wireless to your /data/apps folder, and a launcher (both while booted from noogie, with a linux host mounting up the filesystems.) Set up /system properly for su, again just copying in from your stock ST. Enable ADB over wireless using that tool - persistent would be cool, but being able to turn it on at all is great.

    I have an alternate launcher, adb over wifi, su installed.

    Repartiitioning is done, symlinks are done. I didn't get the partitions exactly how I wanted them, but I have 880
    mb of internal storage for myself, the unit is registered and is downloading to /media so I can fish the files I want
    back out.

    Win, except that the illumination is pretty uneven on my unit.

    Does that improve over time?

    I haven't tried getting the G market running, but I did just set up the Amazon market and it is running with no trouble at all.

    I see with interest that the glowworm has a browser built into it still, exposed once you install a launcher and Button Savior.
