Today’s video is an unboxing in Italian which I find interesting because people outside the U.S. can’t fondle a Nook Touch in a store like we Americans can, so their first impressions really are their first when getting it:

    Mike,
    Thanks for compiling all this news everyday.
    Can you tell me: what’s the easiest way to root my Nook Touch if I just want to get the Kindle app running (and maybe Instafetch) and have access to the Market? (fyi, I’m running Snow Leopard)
    Thanks!
    Dan

  2. ME!

    Have you heard of anything concerning the resizing/repartition of the device’s storage? Mainly the 750MBs of inaccessible storage.

      Nothing yet. That might have to wait for the next step as the hackers go deeper into it.

      • ME!

        Thanks, One more question if I may though.
        Do you happen to know if it’s possible to go back to original firmware after rooting?
        I don’t really have any use for it ATM since there are no B&N stores anywhere nearby but I don’t know if in the future there may be.
        :/

        Oh!, and is it true that you still can’t install apps from android’s store directly to the nook without the use of that “adb”?

      • mikecane

        From what I’ve read, factory reset will revert it. It’s rooting. not OS modification like CM7 put into the internal chip of the NookColor.

        Once rooted with Android Market working, apps can be installed directly onto the Nook Touch. They can also be installed from other sites via a browser such as Opera or Dolphin (I don’t think the included browser can do that, but I might be wrong; in any case, people ditch that browser ASAP).

    cool. thanks again.
