Note: All Nook Touch rooting news of this day will be consolidated into this single post, with any updates at the end.
Update June 13, 2011: See end of post for new apps confirmed working — and which do not.
Hurrah! The Kindle for Android app running on a rooted Nook Touch will sync to your Amazon cloud library! In fact:
It does exactly what the android app does.
So, a rooted Nook Touch becomes a sort of Kindle (sort of, in that there’s the page-slide animation instead of simple page refresh).
What apps have people installed? See a photo after the break!
This photo from a member at the XDA Developers forum says a lot:
And here are the Nook Touch CPU details from another XDA member:
Processor : ARMv7 Processor rev 2 (v7l)
BogoMIPS : 597.64

That’s the same CPU as the NookColor. Speed!
And from the XDA member whose photo opened this post, comes word of how much RAM there is:
I think it has 228 useable ram, and 789 program memory
Edit: my ram used was at 200 before I cleared it out. That’s probably gonna be an issue for heavy use
That’s 200/228 megabytes and 789 megabytes.
Everyone still awaits an easy method for rooting and Android program installation.
