    Re: Nook for Android won't load my ePubs

    Same story here. Something about it scanning the MyFiles folder causes a crash when the scan finishes, even if the folder is empty.

    However, if you restart the app and let it scan from the main...

    Re: regarding softroot

    I find that sometimes Trook will cause the battery drain after using it. A reboot of the nook after using Trook is always a good idea. Even in airplane mode Trook can run the battery down fast - not...
  6. Re: Anyone who has Softrooted able to download/buy BN books directly?

    Mine's been softrooted ever since the first softroot was released. I've got the latest.

    I bought a book online through B&N just about 3 days ago. Softroot doesn't interfere at all - you also don't...

    Re: Nook Icon Theme - Glass on Black

    The only downside is that in order to replace any icons that are built-in to the nookLauncher, you must manually edit the SQLITE database on the nook for the nookLauncher settings. Kind of a geeky...

    Re: My Books App issues with Soft Root 1.3.0

    The NookLibrary issue has been resolved, and I believe is now including 0.0.9 in the streamlined install.

    To fix an already rooted nook with the NookLibrary issue on 1.3, you need to uninstall...

    Nook Icon Theme - Glass on Black

    I've just made a custom icon set for rooted nooks. I haven't released it yet because it's kind of a pain to install, but the next release of the launcher should make it easier.

    Re: Can I run v1.3 over my softrooted Nook?

    FYI I think the 1.3 root is still a little broken on the "My Library" function. It's easy to fix if you're technically inclined (use ADB to remove and then install the latest nookLauncher.apk and...

    Re: Rooted nook unsecure?

    He does make a good point though. If I was an enterprising young hacker I might hang out at Starbucks with my laptop and try getting into people's nooks to wreak havok.

    Re: Using My Books app inside Trook

    Just so we're clear - there's a hacked 'My Books' application provided with the newest softroot. There's also a book list viewer inside of Trook. Don't use the one in Trook. I don't think you are, I...

    Re: Softroot and Calibre

    No, I'm a network admin and run my own firewall in Linux. I just forwarded the port 5050 through to my desktop and it worked.

    Sorry for the delay, work has kept me busy.

    The problem is really less about the nook and more about broken auth schemes implemented in various places. They have pushed beyond the standards and are pulling sly tricks to make the auth work...
  21. Poll: Re: NYT: It is not unethical to pirate ebooks you if you own the book

    Even the article states it's illegal. He claims it's ethical though.

    The big conundrum is really more about the perceived "cost" of the item. I think we see that a lot with e-book content, music,...

    Re: Defrag the nook

    The memory in the nook available when you sideload is formatted in FAT32 (pretty sure about that anyway) so yes it will become fragmented over time.

    The Windows defrag utility is more of a joke...

    Re: Easy conversion of your files to Epub!

    Chapter detection with Calibre is an art, and nearly requires a masters degree in computer geekyness. Yes, I'm pretty sure that's a real degree.
