Rooted Nook Touch Notes For September 4th 2011

In the hopes the new Android-based Sony Reader WiFi will be rootable like the Nook Touch, I’ve spent today catching up on the latest at XDA Developers.

I’ve decided to compile links in one post that might be useful for when the Sony Reader WiFi is available.

Apps that work on Nook Touch — if the Sony Reader WiFi can be rooted, will these work on it too?

Ad-Hoc for Nook STR – DONE! — tether to a cellphone!

[Q] Installing swype? — if Swype is installed and works, I have to think Graffiti would work too.

SwiftKeyX — might be applicable to installing Graffiti.

[Q] Keyboard with numbers too — a Nook Touch being used for data entry!

Nook STR update 1.0.1 — if Sony does OTA updates, tips here will be useful.

Copy and Paste problems — hmmmmm.

[Q] [N2E] A lot of text is missing in the non-B&N UI — I wonder what’s up with that? And if the Sony Reader WiFi can be rooted and that doesn’t happen, people will flock to it instead.

Nook Touch Partition Hacking and Resize Nook STR Partitions — Sony will likely resort to this too, as a way of bypassing Adobe’s DRM vig for each eBook purchase (that’s why both Nook and Kobo both do it).

[Q] app screen rotate — achieving landscape mode via tricks and making it persist.

[Q] CBR reader and Office Suite — if Sony was really smart, they’d have Bluetooth hidden inside the Reader. Being able to use a Bluetooth keyboard with Documents To Go would create techgasms and monster sales.

    I saw the new Sony tablet at HHGregg and fell in love with it. I’m really thinking of getting the new reader.
