Rooting Directions for New Nook GlowLight

The smart folks at XDA have done it again. I thought there would be little interest in rooting the new Nook GlowLight since it lacks an SD card slot and doesn’t really offer anything new that the older Nooks don’t have, aside from the improved frontlight and higher resolution screen.

How to Root GlowLight Nook Touch with TinyNoot (Video)

The Nook Touch with GlowLight has been out for a little over two weeks now. The first week a few developers that knew what they were doing were able to root their Nook Glow with a manual rooting method, but that is a little advanced for most people, including myself (Windows doesn’t make it easy).

Custom ROM for Novo 7 Paladin Adds Google Play and Root Access

A while back I reviewed the Novo 7 Paladin, a cheap Android tablet from China that sells for around $100 on Amazon. Out of the box it came with Android 4.0.1 and included a watered-down version of the Android Market (not very many apps showed up). As mentioned in the review, I found an official […]
