Rooted Nook Simple Touch Apps Preview: Mango Manga Reader, Kobo, Kindle, Overdrive, PDF




What do you think about this video?

ThisMentelgenIsSpy: 0:10 The Princess and The pencil

13Keepers: wow - finally a video with some decent music playing - usually it's that heavy metal bullcrap scaring the hell out of me.

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.

cool08player: theres rly no point in rooting a nook simple touch...

iRajiv: @cool08player Sure there is. You can pull the DRM off the Overdrive, Kobo, and Kindle books by hooking it into your computer and reformatting them. Or you could root it, load up the apps, and it becomes a good $99 Android e-ink reader/tablet

Bathtub of Craisins: I rooted my nook simple touch and it has ADB wireless now. I am trying to get on the internet wirelessly, and i can via gmail and the android app store, but I cannot access the internet via the web browser. When I open adb wireless, it says to run 'adb connect' on your computer. Please help me! I am able to install and run apps, but not browse the web with browser/opera mini. Please help! I will subscribe if you respond.

Waterlily716: 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?

iRajiv: @13Keepers It's a little tricky to do if you're new to Android rooting, but yes if you make a backup before you start changing stuff you can revert easily. On YouTube search for "how to root nook simple touch" by a user named "TheeBookReader". He posts the XDA links in his video. If it's too complicated for you sell it and get the Kindle Touch, it's much cheaper and the Nook's haven't dropped in price yet to match

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.

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

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 :/

Kai Compton: can you send me the link to the book?

13Keepers: Ok - iRajiv - I have a dilemma here - I bought the NST just a few months ago - but really wanted an Amazon Touch, which of course, was not in existence until today. I have to do something about this Nook ST / Kindle T conflict here. I do not care about anything else, but being able to get the Kindle app on my Nook, as I buy most of my books from Amazon- how do I do this - and is is safe? Can I revert back to stock software if I need to? And does rooting it make it less smooth or anything? Thanks

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?

iRajiv: @geekylolitadress the Kobo app really doesn't work that well. I'll have to do another video this weekend that shows it. Out of all my books, only one worked, the rest give that error that's shown in the first book. Until a rom gets released, this won't be fixed. But yeah, the manga reader text is visible, I'll show it more off this weekend and actually record audio

justin wadahara: anyone try manga on the nook tablet and or color?

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.

iRajiv: @13Keepers yeah YouTube always default to the crappiest music and most don't take the time to find something decent. It's usually some generic rock, or that annoying techno song that's EVERYWHERE

iRajiv: @desimaniac Yep, quality quirky free book. Check it out!

iRajiv: @myuzakitheglitcher it works fine. Some pages you have to scroll down as well as left and right, but I wasn't doing that in the video. I've made another video where I show the Mango app a little bit more, check out my channel becuase I can't post the link. As for Mango Bankai? Can't seem to find that app in the Market, sorry!

Myuzaki: How does mango work for the NST rooted?...it seemed like some of the pages were not being fully displayed...am I mistaken? and do you know if Mango Bankai works with this as well...?

iRajiv: @Aristotle10 I'm using 3.2.0.35. 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

geekylolitadress: Ah, nevermind about Ankidroid, found a video of it working quite well.

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.

mug3k: 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.

PERSONALEEMG: ANNE

geekylolitadress: Excellent video! A few questions though.. About the Kobo App, does the Reading Life feature on it work properly? I have a question about the manga reader too. Is text readable with images fitted to the height/width of the device, or is the screen just too small/not sharp enough for that? Whenver you have the time, I'd also like to know whether or not the AnkiDroid Flashcards app works. Thanks!

rocs2hrd4u: LOLOLOLOLOLOL DID ANYONE ELSE SEE THE BOOK TITLED PRINCESS AND THE pencil!?!?!?!

weregoingunion: great... you show that it can flip through pages in a comic, which is great to know if you only like to read a portion of each page. what if you like to read the *whole* page? is there a way to zoom? also, PDFs seem to load up fine as a whole page, but what if you can't read 4pt. font? is there a way to zoom in? people keep posting about all these great things they can do with a rooted whatever, but why not actually describe (or in youtube's case: show) how USEABLE it actually is.

Jesus Gastelum: Do you know if you can install the 10000 + free ebooks app on the rooted nook? thanks

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!

gulkerjb: Where did you download Overdrive Media?

Adil Ashraf: the princess and the pencil? wtf 0:10

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.

iRajiv: @sfreeman1987 that's a drawback of e-ink screens. If you're using the built in reader app with the Nook, it only fashes once every 7 pages. Other apps, unless speciially designed, flash every page. It's a problem with every e-ink based reader, from Sony to the Kindle to the Kobo.

iRajiv: @davocreative Id be happy to demo you a video showing you one of your PDFs youre wondering about If youre interested DM me

13Keepers: @desimaniac Ya, I noticed that too.. and was going to pretty much post your exact words - but then... I might get a reply - when really, I'd rather not know! heheheh

Merc Ury: what version of android are you running on the nook touch?

iRajiv: @13Keepers yeah YouTube always default to the crappiest music and most don't take the time to find something decent. It's usually some generic rock, or that annoying techno song that's EVERYWHERE

Adil Ashraf: @iRajiv lol cool

iRajiv: @weregoingunion it's an 800x600 6 inch screen, you can't read it clearly if it's set to show the full page, that's why I show the individual panels. As for PDF's, there's a few different apps out there that do PDF, but because it doesn't have a multitouch screen it doesn't always work well. You can reflow the text but it most time screws with he formatting. I'll do a video just for you this week, and PM you the link when it's up.

iRajiv: @13Keepers I'd rather have the Nook personally because you can do more with it. Like I said, if rooting and such is all new and scary I'd just get the Kindle if you're fine living in their exclusive bookstore

EMT: Thanks! They sometimes skip corners and take the easy way. If they ever did that, I suggest you consult with a paralegal or lawyer. This way they won't be able to cheat you.
