Updating is the process of installing new Barnes & Noble system software on the Nook Simple Touch.

There are three ways to do this:

  • Wait for an Over-the-Air (OTA) update to do it automatically.
  • Download an update from the Barnes & Noble website (link below). Follow instructions there.
  • Force your Nook to update to the latest software by following these steps.
    • Turn your Nook all the way off.
    • Turn it back on.
    • When the screen flashes white, start holding the two side hardware buttons on the right side.
      • You will need to wait about 30 seconds for something to happen.
    • Your Nook will then automatically update to 1.2.1.
