Rooting Nook Touch hits Japan
Nook Simple Touch Root adapts the script package mentioned at the top of this post for the Japanese language.
% Adb pull / system / fonts # backup% adb push MigMix font-1P-regular.ttf / system / fonts / Trebuchet.ttf
% Adb push MigMix-1P-regular.ttf / system / fonts / Trebuchet-Italic.ttf

% Adb push MigMix-1P-bold.ttf / system / fonts / Trebuchet-BoldItalic.ttf

Today’s video is a bizarre booklight accessory that has nothing to do with rooting but seems to be something to avoid:
