An Introduction to Rooting Your NOOK Simple Touch

B&N locked down Android on your NOOK Simple Touch to prevent you from accessing some of Android’s capabilities. However, by following a process called rooting your NOOK Simple Touch, you can open up these capabilities to make your NOOK Simple Touch more powerful and useful.


Note

In the Android OS, root is the superuser who has access to everything in the OS. By rooting your NOOK Simple Touch, you can become the superuser on your NOOK Simple Touch.


Following are just a few of the things you can do after you root your NOOK Simple Touch:

• Add music players and PDF readers.

• Add a browser and cruise the web.

• Add calculator and note-taking apps.

• Access the Android Market.

These are just a few examples of the power unleashed by rooting your NOOK Simple Touch.
