Jesus Gastelum: Do you know if you can install the 10000 + free ebooks app on the rooted nook? thanks
Merc Ury: what version of android are you running on the nook touch?
Kai Compton: can you send me the link to the book?
iRajiv: I can't send you the exact link here. So I have DM'ed it to you. Let me know if you have any questions
iRajiv: I made a DD image of my Nook when it was factory fresh. That way no matter what I do I can restore it. You can do the 10 reboot method but it is extremely annoying. If you check the official XDA Developers Forum for the there's step by step guides on backing up there.
Waterlily716 (Sarah Berro): I've also heard you can reboot the nook like 10 ten times and it will revert. I saw someone do it in a video. How did you go about backing up your nook?
Marcus: Got any idea what it's like to scroll a large library when using something like mantano reader ?, I have around 800 books so I guess that could be a problem.
iRajiv: @davocreative Id be happy to demo you a video showing you one of your PDFs youre wondering about If youre interested DM me
davocreative: hi, i´m planning on buying this e-reader, but my question is: does the nook(rooted) handle big PDFfiles?, i have sereval PDFs wich are about 500 mb in size. so that is really a concern to me.
justin wadahara: anyone try manga on the nook tablet and or color?
iRajiv: @Aristotle10 I'm using 188.8.131.52. It's the latest version the Market will let you install. The newer versions are for Froyo 2.2 and above. There's no PDF support, but Whispersync is still there. You may have to do it manually. In the book, just hit the Menu button, More, then Sync
09yulstube: Hi, I'm about to buy the nook simple touch, and I have no idea what's this rooting thing... can u help by guiding me to some tutorials on how to install the manga app?
eebruce: @cool08player Which stock eInk reader allows you to both obtain and read B&N, Kindle, Kobo, Overdrive, Project Gutenburg and online reader ebooks all on the same device? The warranty is a good point: be sure to make a backup of the stock firmware before rooting it.
iRajiv: @weregoingunion yeah if you have an iPad use that. E-ink screen are only really good for cover to cover reading, not referencing specific sections.
weregoingunion: @iRajiv awesome, thanks. I think I've finally given up on the eInk readers for my purposes though. I have an iPad to read the PDFs and don't really need another device laying around unless it really would completely solve my PDF reading problem. I have all of my schoolbooks in PDF and because we need to know which page numbers to read, the whole reflow or PDF->ebook thing doesn't sound very convenient. thanks though!
iRajiv: @cool08player If you make a backup of your Nook before you do any hackery you can restore it and keep your warranty still alive, but to each his own. I had an old Kobo, so the blinking every page doesn't bother me. Besides the stock reader, I mainly use it for the Kindle and Overdrive apps.
cool08player: @iRajiv you can easily just reformat using calibre, not a big problem. and yeah besides the DRM i don't rly see a point. i have a 16GB sd card for it, which is more than enough for an e-ink reader. but its a e-ink reader, not an iphone. you might have apps on it but u wouldnt enjoy using the apps b/c the screen will be too blinky all of the time. plus i bought a 2 year warranty for $20. if i root it my warranty is void :/
