Note: All Nook Touch rooting news of this day will be consolidated into this single post, with any updates at the end.
We’re all still waiting for a rooting method as easy as that for the NookColor. No developments on that yet.
XDA Developers forum:
This post confirms that the eInk refresh buffering does not carry over to other reading apps installed via rooting:
Yeah, I have to tap the screen in order to turn pages in Aldiko. It seems as the flashing effect you get every 5th page with the native Nook app occurs every page turn with Aldiko. Sort of a weird effect, but I can probably get used to it.
It’s odd, but many people who were otherwise not interested in eInk devices are buying a Nook Touch because it can be rooted. Their obvious surprise at how eInk functions reveals this.
This post confirms that Evernote and Moon+ Reader work on the rooted Nook Touch and he’s also updated his list of Working/Not Working software:
Opera Mini (There are zoom buttons !. But it cannot access the local host (192.168.x.x))
Opera Mobile (It can access the local host)
Documents to Go

Moon+ Reader (The physical buttons can also change pages !!! and every page is refreshed. No more ghosting issue)
