Nook Glowlight Plus Rooting Notes #10

A brief post. Things seem to be in a lull.

Now it seems OK to use Kingo Root, according to Windsor1959 (who originally shot down that idea):

My apologies! I decided to try Kingo Root for Windows after all, after reading up about it. After maybe 45 minutes of working on it, with several reboots, it achieved root for me. Just to be on the safe side, I installed SuperSU and System App Remover. Before rebooting the NGP after SuperSU downloaded its binary, I deleted the KingoRoot superuser with System App Remover.

USB-C Cautions

Not all USB Type C cables are equal: A Googler tells you which to avoid

But USB Type-C is still a new technology… and while you can find plenty of cables and adapters available for purchase, it turns out not all of them work the the way you’d expect. Not sure which one to buy? A Google employee is here to help.

I took my first trip to Micro Center in Brooklyn yesterday. I marveled at a brand-name USB-C to USB cable adapter that was going for US$22.95! My god!

(I went there to buy a US$9.99 card r/w for the CLIE’s Memory Stick. Wound up buying one that was priced at US$14.99, on sale for US$5.99. And it also had 3 USB ports! Seeing all the choices not available at Best Buy was a bit of a shock!)
