Nook Touch 1.1 Rooting News For November 21, 2011

There have been some new developments.

TouchNooter has been updated: [N2E][1.1] TouchNooter 1.11.20

And there is a fork of it, that loads different apps during the process: [N2E][1.1] SalsichaNooter 0.4 18/11 – With Market, Gapps, Themed ADW, NookTouchTools

Before doing either of those, if you’ve already used the Nook Touch and have bookmarks and notes, scroll down in this thread for backup instructions: [NST]Manual Rooting + GApps!+ EXTRAS. The Nook Touch has to be set up for ADB transfer first.

And do this before really messing with anything: Backup/Restore N2E

This might turn into something down the road: Nook Touch kernel hacking

Some Nook Touch are experiencing touchscreen sensor failure: [Q] Nook touch screen not responding, with a link there to a long thread about it at the Barnes & Noble forums.

Best Launcher for Nook STR? — in this ongoing discussion, someone posted screensnaps of a theme he created for Go Launcher, as well as posting the theme for downloading:

Here’s a new rooted Nook Touch video, and it’s notable for showing the eBay app running as well as a timer app:

    Hi, I’m the creator of the Manual Rooting tutorial.
    You should add that there are some issues with market and the automatic methods which (including me) are trying to solve, without much succes for the moment.
    On the 1.1 update, the manual way is the only reliable method to install Gapps and have market fully functional for the moment.

    Soon it will be worked out, a way to intall Gapps realiably for the automatic methods, but in the mean time add a notice.

      I do point them to the threads, where they can see the issues being hashed out. I was just there today and saw how unpredictable rooting 1.1 has become, with some people having Market access and others not, still with no discernible cause. I don’t think anyone will jump right in without reading directions first. That’d create a disaster.

    New method, for the moment it worked for the people that touchnooter and salsicha failed:

      I saw that last night but didn’t do an update post yet. I figured people who click through to XDA will also explore and see that.
