Nook Touch Rooting: June 20th News

Note: All Nook Touch rooting news of this day will be consolidated into this single post, with any updates at the end. Note the second: there’s an update so important, I’ve put it first!

Update June 20, 2011: Important XDA Developers thread! Nook Simple Touch Root & Setup Script Kit

Here’s a link to bookmark: 17 places to download Android apps (that aren’t the Android Market)

XDA Developers forum:

This post asks about ADB not working consistently and this post confirms it.

This post discusses basic Android apps for the Nook Touch and provides an attached downloadable apk of Zeam.

This post mentions some messing around with Cyanogenmod 7 for the Nook Touch.

This post has an important warning about using SetCPU:

One more thing! DO NOT use the SetCPU settings of 300MHz with the profile of “screen off.” My Nook 2 started running hot when I enabled this setting. There could be other factors, but when I tried locking the screen and picked up my device about 3 minutes later, the rubber backing was warm to the touch. I do not advice trying to underclock your Nooks CPU when the screen is off, the default processor settings are suffice.

MobileRead forum:

This post mentions several Google apks require other Google apks to work.

This post wonders if Linux is required to see all the partitions during the rooting process that indicate success.

This thread discusses free space on a microSD card after using it for CM7 with a NookColor. This might be good to know later.

This thread is discussing a Nook Touch that might have been bricked during the rooting process.

Today’s only new video is a demo of the unrooted stock Nook Touch browser, but I thought it was still interesting. That stand, by the way, is a business card holder and can be bought cheap at Staples, Office Depot, or just about any stationery/office supply store.
