How to Root a NOOK Simple Touch to Run Android Apps

The NOOK Simple Touch eReader is a pretty decent bit of hardware right out of the box. Its e-ink screen provides one of the most paper-like experiences available and the battery lasts upwards of a month. However, with an operating based on Android, you’d think you could do a bit more with it than read.

The developer community at XDA has recently determined that the NOOK can be rooted to run Android 2.1 Eclair. If you’re interested in trying it out, the entire process is is covered by Kannon Yamada on MakeUseOf. It takes a bit of work, but once done you’ll be able to zoom in on PDF’s, overclock the device and run Android software. Anyone up for Sonic the Hedgehog on a NOOK Simple Touch?

Share this tip with any friends you have with a NOOK, they’ll be glad you did.
