    Default Nook 1.5 with Root and ADB

    Nook 1.5 with Root and ADB

    Posted by Disconnect

    Thanks in large part to JesusFreke for the kernel module, and the old (abandoned?) Nookdevs guys, plus some users on #nookdevs IRC, I have a surprise for everyone.

    Nook software 1.5, with root and adb. Find it attached, follow the standard softroot directions (save it to external sd, call it bravo_update.dat, etc.) It will upgrade any 1.4 or 2.4 device to the new 1.5 without disabling adb. (It has NOT been tested on the new hardware. It should work, but…)

    This is offered with very little support, because I’m going to be spending the day running around I’ll be on IRC later this evening, and I’ll respond to queries here then also. Enjoy!

    The mods are going to let this one stand for now. Folks, remember, if you download this hack you are on your own.

    This one located here -> http://www.perfinion.com:81/nookdevs...date-2.5.1.dat seems to be more official. It´s been posted in the nookdevs irc;

    I think until they actually post it on the nookdevs.com site, it should be considered a beta.

    I've already installed it, and I love the new fast page turning. Also, the inclusion of nookMarket should make installing other nookdevs apps a lot easier for people. No need to mess around with adb any more.

    Just to clarify, the 2.5.1 version above at perfinion.com DOES or DOES NOT include ADB over USB. Everything says it should but I cannot use it unless it really does.

    Thanks

    I updated to the 2.5.1 version, and I can confirm that adb is over USB.

    I confirm that the softroot version 2.5.1 located at perfinion website works. Just finished updating it myself, here is the link to it: http://www.perfinion.com:81/nookdevs...date-2.5.1.dat
    Be aware: You MUST rename the file to this name: bravo_update.dat
    if you leave it as it is: bravo_update-2.5.1.dat then it will only check for an update, but fail to find it.
    Check the nooklet I created: http://nookdevs.com/Nooklet_applications
    (Hangman and currency converter).
    Hope you like it!

    I was on the nookdevs irc yesterday and asked why this version of nook 2.5.1 isn´t available in the site. They told me that the guys in charge of the site were not around (???) and for this reason there is no link in there. It makes me think that nookdevs is somehow abandoned.
    There´s other post on the nookdevs forum saying something like this.
    What do you think about that?

    These guys have a life outside of rooting the software.. I think it was rather amazing that they had a new version ready to go the night 1.5 was released.

    There is a number of different packages that have to be tested an included and all it takes is one or two of the guys working on that to be busy with their jobs or with their family to hold things up.
