Video: Nook Touch Running Classic Mac OS

Here it is, the proof everyone needed to see (no audio):

Showing how the mac works on the nook. It has a few quirks, but overall it’s pretty neat. I even had Myst running the other day. I figured out eventually.. (after I made the video) that if the command key is pressed in, you can’t type anything in a game or application. Also if you notice in the darts and lemmings, the contrast is low. This can be adjusted but it takes a minute of sporadic tapping to bring up the contrast settings. This wasn’t happening in the old version of NoRefresh. Anyways, mac on a nook!

• 24-bit audio recording
• playing MP3 audio

And that’s just for starters!

See these two threads at XDA Developers:

New Nook GL rooting

I’d wait until all the available rooting methods have been updated to the 1.1.5 version of Nook OS the GlowLight edition contains.
