OK, so you know that the new Barnes & Noble NOOK Touch eBook reader has a built-in web browser and you know it’s possible to root the Android device and install third party apps. But how do you do it yourself?
The folks at NOOK Devs have put together a set of step by step instructions which you can follow from a Windows, Mac, or Linux computer.
All you need is a NOOK Touch, a 128MB or larger Class 6 microSD card, a computer, and a WiFi connection for the NOOK Touch. Oh yeah, you’ll also need to be willing to break your warranty, because if something goes wrong, don’t expect Barnes & Noble to simply take back the broken eReader without asking any questions (although you mgiht get lucky).
The process doesn’t look all that difficult, but you should probably read the complete set of instructions before getting started, because if you’re not comfortable with some of the terminology there’s a chance you might do more harm than good.
